How China Supports people with Disabilities

How China Supports people with Disabilities

China, around the world, is not noted for its support for people with disabilities but there are very strong signs that this is changing, not because China has suddenly started to care about people with disabilities, it seems, when we look deeper into it, they always did. But because China is now catching up with the rest of the world in how they deliver services and in what services they deliver. What’s noticeable is that they aren’t out there in world forums shouting about it, they are doing what China does best — acting on it.
