Hukoomi Portal for Persons with Disabilities was launched yesterday, in partnership with Qatar e-Government Portal � Hukoomi and Qatar Assistive Technology Center (mada), bringing the different services and benefits offered to the persons with disability in one platform, while ensuring ease of use and accessibility.

The new portal is a link between the persons with disability and their families, care and service providers, and support facilities offered to this category in both the private and public sectors. This is aimed at ensuring accessibility to the persons with disability to sources of information that may concern them in different fields, such as finding good education, how to apply for social security, finding places of health care and rehabilitation, among other useful information.

Tareq Al Emadi, e-Government Portal Department Manager, said: Hukoomi now comprises nearly 1,300 government and semi-government services. To that end, we have considered launching a Hukoomi portal for persons with disability ensuring accessibility to them. It is the right of every person, whatever his health condition is, to use technology in Qatar in a normal way and get access to all information, and here comes our role in overcoming such difficulties as we help them get digital access.
