The Abu Dhabi Comprehensive Strategy for People of Determination 2020-2024 addresses the needs of people of determination in the areas of health, rehabilitation, education, employment, social care and social security, as well as social engagement, sports, culture and tourism.
The strategy also focuses on creating an accessible and enabling environment in buildings, facilities, transportation, housing and other services.
