This conference seeks to generate inclusive dialogues and interdisciplinary interactions between academia, community organizers, social and legal activists, health care service/providers, and religious leaders. The goal is to encourage open discussion and better understanding and to breakdown stigma associated with disabilities. Panel discussions, keynotes and sessions will serve as platforms to foster collaboration between various groups engaged in understanding and improving disability conditions.
