By 1987, a number of associations had been formed and came together to form an umbrella organisation called National Union of Disabled Persons of Uganda (NUDIPU). This section looks at why and how UNAPD was formed.
The need to unite PWPDs for collective action. This would provide them a forum for analysing needs, challenges and opportunities, and make a united front to overcome the barriers to achieving equal opportunities.
The need to lobby for support for specific needs of PWPDs that had not been considered due to lack of an appropriate forum.
To strengthen the Disability Fraternity through forming a national organisation.
go to this website This is not to say, however, that before the formation of UNAPD, PWPDs had not been active in the Disability Fraternity. Many organisations including NUDIPU were started and had been strongly influenced and supported by PWPDs.
