Persons With Disabilities' Issues Still Work In Progress

In conjunction with the International Day of Persons with Disabilities on Dec 3rd, we look at the discrimination faced by this community especially in workplaces. Despite Malaysia implementing the Persons with Disabilities Act in 2008, guaranteeing equal access for PWDs to public facilities, healthcare, and recreation, what issues remain? V. Murugeswaran, President, of the Damai Disabled Persons Association Malaysia, reflects on this.
