Dear Colleagues, We are delighted to inform you all that Advisor's Council of the Government of Bangladesh has decided to ratify the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). It means that the government of Bangladesh now has got the legal bindings to implement the standards set out in this international human rights law for the persons with disabilities in Bangladesh. This ratification pays respect to the rights and dignity of persons with disabilities world over. Let's all promote human rights for persons with disabilities!
