Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in Latin America, and people with disabilities are not sufficiently included in society.
Since 2005, the year Evo Morales was first elected President, Bolivian society and institutions have undergone a process of fundamental change. That election marked a decisive turning point in terms of the recognition and inclusion of the country’s 36 ethnic groups and indigenous cultures. Social and economic reforms were also initiated. Nevertheless, while Bolivia is a country with strong economic growth, according to the World Bank, 45% of the population are still living in poverty. Inequality persists and people with disabilities remain marginalised.
