Dr. Yuta. Authors.

I have taken the time to review the document. I humbly submit that the literature is very okay, and the systems are also fair. The only fear is the practicability of the recommendations.

In the case of Uganda, there are many inclusive social protection schemes but in most cases, bureaucracy and tight conditions have made most of the schemes fail.

There is a need to use bottom or program-based planning for social protection for Universal coverage. Consulting DPOs alone is not enough going down to the beneficiaries is very important. 

Also, there is the challenge of the domestication of CRPDA, The CRPDA was not disseminated fully to be understood by the various line Ministries making an inclusive perspective vague, and are not knowledgeable about disability issues for inclusion a case for accessibility within Works and Transport Ministry, Justice and Labour/Industrial Division.

Universal social protection in Health services is a challenge since all have to access Health at government facilities but they are not accessible and with no interpreters many deaf, blind, and physically disabled persons.  There is a need to have systems of assistance and devices that enable inclusive access to health facilities. 


Thank you.
