In order to guarantee access to health care for people with disabilities as stipulated in article 25 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (www.ohchr.org/FR/ProfessionalInterest/Pages/ConventionRightsPersonsWithDisabilities.aspx) and article 19 of the law on the integration of disabled people (Le Moniteur # 79 May 21, 2012), Secretary of State Soinette Désir accompanied by a team from the Office of the Secretary of State for the Integration of People Handicapped (BSEIPH), met with Dr Georges-Fils Brignol, Head of the Saint-Georges Clinic, with a view to developing a collaboration between the BSEIPH and the Health Center for the medical care of disabled people.
