It is estimated that 16% of the population of Uganda has a disability.

 

In 1995 the constitution was updated to include education as a basic right for all Ugandan children as a first step towards addressing the needs of persons with disabilities. In 2003 the National Council for Disability Act was established to address complaints of violations of the constitution, but it has not handled a single complaint since inception due to capacity constraints. In 2006 the Persons with Disabilities Act was enacted.
