disability, which is necessary for putting in place appropriate policies and programmes for
children with disabilities.
Assessment using Impact Iran human rights indicators1
A. Collect data on children with disabilities
Article 29 of the Comprehensive Law for the Protection of the Rights of Persons with
Disabilities obliges the National Statistics Center to prepare classified statistics on persons with
disabilities.2 There is no readily available information that might suggest that such report has
been or will be made readily available.
The annual performance report, made readily available, of the Ministry of Health does not
contain statistics and information on persons with disabilities, including children with
disabilities.3
The Welfare Organization publishes its annual statistics, which include the number of persons
with disabilities who benefit from its services. These statistics are also categorized by type of
disability.4
The Ministry of Health does not provide such categorized statistics (at least via publicly
accessible data). There is no readily available information that indicates that disaggregated data
on children with disabilities is collected for the Welfare Organization’s annual statistics.
None of these available statistics contain comprehensive data on children with disabilities.
B. Develop an efficient system for diagnosing disability, which is necessary for putting
in place appropriate policies and programmes for children with disabilities
