Alvarado also called on the private business sector and NGOs to develop programs aimed to offer employment and decent work for this population.
"People with disabilities... have had to face this pandemic with more vulnerability generated due to the lack of employment, poverty, and difficulties in the use of technology," CONAPDIS Director Lizbeth Barrantes noted.
"The needs and realities of people with disabilities are diverse. Our commitment is to lay the public foundations to respond to that diversity," Labor and Social Security Minister Silvia Lara added.
