A responsible social policy must effectively direct financial resources to those members of society who need support to live a dignified life, in the spirit of social cohesion, people with severe disabilities continue to be the most marginalized social category. It is also one of the three pillars of the Europe Strategy of 2020 that Romania must uphold with the other Member States.
Reviewer's comments on the document:
Support for disabled people is needed to be given for them to correctly access the social services and to include them in the society. A permanent communication between doctors, carers and other parties is needed to ensure a proper integration of disabled people into the society.
