2. The summary records for the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) 42nd and 43rd sessions
The summary records for the 42nd CEDAW and 43rd sessions are now available on the Office for the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) Geneva website at http://www2.ohchr.org/english/bodies/cedaw/pressreleases.htm. This link will take you to a link at www.unog.ch/  document database. To navigate the database here for summary records first go to News and Media, then select press releases and meeting summaries, then search for CEDAW and select the year. The countries that reported atthe 42nd session are: Bahrain, Belgium, Canada, Ecuador, El Salvador, Kyrgyzstan, Madagascar, Mongolia, Myanmar, Portugal, Slovenia and Uruguay. The countries that reported at the 43rd session are: Rwanda, Guatemala, Germany, Dominica, Libya, Camerooon, Haiti, Armenia. As you may know, summary records/meeting summaries capture the details of the constructive dialogue between the CEDAW Committee and the countries that are being reviewed. While it is not a verbatim report, it is official and more accurate and detailed than the press releases. Therefore, it would be a useful addition to your advocacy work in your home country. If you wish to access the summary records of previous sessions (i.e. from the 30th CEDAW session to 35th session), these are available on our website: http://www.iwraw-ap.org/resources/summary_records.htm.  Older records can be found at http://unbisnet.un.org:8080/ipac20/ipac.jsp?profile=bib&menu=search&submenu=power#focus

3. Suo-motu Action of Lahore High Court - Job for People with Disabilities

The Lahore High Court (LHC) was informed on Tuesday that the federal government had appointed 1,386 persons with disability in different departments under the two percent quota fixed for them. Deputy Attorney General Iqbal Gillani informed the court that the government would appoint more disabled people against 800 vacancies. He said the federal government had also sought a report from all provincial governments about the vacancies reserved for disabled people. LHC Chief Justice (CJ) Khawaja Muhammad Sharif put off the hearing until August 10 with directions to the federal and provincial governments to submit their reports after appointing disabled people against the quota reserved for them. The CJ had taken suo motu notice after a ceremony for the 'Most Caring Families Awards' held by the Punjab Welfare Trust for disabled people . The CJ was the chief guest at the ceremony. During the ceremony, it was brought to his notice that the central as well the provincial governments had fixed two percent quota for the employment of disabled people, but the departments were not following this rule.

5. New, updated edition of "Disabled Village Children" has arrived and is available for free download

An updated edition of the benchmark book on community-based rehabilitation, "Disabled Village Children", has just arrived, and is available for free download: http://www.hesperian.org/publications_download.php

From making playgrounds more accessible to creating low-cost rehabilitation aids, Disabled Village Children contains so much information, plus over 4000 helpful drawings and photographs to help readers of all levels understand it. Full of practical information, this indispensable book shows how to identify primary and secondary disabilities, the best range-of-motion exercises, how to build 6 different kinds of wheelchairs using local resources, fun and educational toys that children with disabilities can make and use, and more.

As people with disabilities assert their right to participate in a more just society, Disabled Village Children provides tools that allow children with disabilities to develop more self-confidence and self-reliance. We recently received a letter demonstrating how a boy named Jaime in El Salvador used Disabled Village Children to help fulfill his dream of attending school -- for the full story, please see our blog.

12. Fighting for the right of hearing impaired persons to hold a drivers license in Côte d'Ivoire, your help is required.

Since last year, deaf people have been denied their right to access a drivers license in Côte d'Ivoire. Both associations of the deaf have started advocating for this problem. The Transportation Office of Côte d'Ivoire has asked Society without Barriers-Côte d'Ivoire to bring them the list of all countries in the world where deaf persons have the right to access a drivers license. Your help is required to make this list. Please contact Yédê Adama (sanogoyede@hotmail.fr)

"In one-third of the countries responding, Deaf people are not allowed to obtain a driver's license.. It seems, however, that not all these countries have legislation that explicitly states that Deaf people cannot obtain a driver's license. Prejudices and common practice by the traffic authorities or other institutions handling driver's licenses and driver training seem to be the major obstacles against Deaf people obtaining a driver's license. There are no known reports that Deaf drivers are a threat to other road users in the countries where Deaf people are allowed to obtain a driver's license, or that they are involved in more traffic accidents or injuries than the general population. Denying Deaf people a driver's license is limiting their employment opportunities; as well it limits their freedom of movement and access to various social arenas and life in general". "Deaf People and Human Rights, by Ms Hilde Haualand and Mr Colin Allen for the World Federation of the Deaf and the Swedish National Association of the Deaf, 2009"
