Minister for Women, Children, and Poverty Alleviation Lynda Tabuya says inequality is one of the factors that lead to economic insecurity as it affects a person’s ability to earn income and have equal opportunity.

Tabuya says despite facing challenges such as geography, attitudes, and limited resources, there is a need for all to ensure that people living with disabilities are able to live their lives as others do.
