The journey started in January 2019, by doing advocacy to
various Government Ministries. One of which was the Ministry of Health,
Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children [MoHCDGEC] who we have a
Memorandum of Understanding between us.
In October our efforts were joined by the DS Self Advocate from Uganda who
together with the Tanzania’s Self Advocate, and parents visited several
Government Ministries to explain more about the need for the Government to
address the human rights needs of Down syndrome persons.
