The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD) sets out binding rules governing participation by persons with disabilities. This group of persons also extends to those injured in occupational and commuting accidents or aff ected by occupational diseases. In Germany, the German Social Accident Insurance is responsible for this group.
Besides state authorities, certain bodies in Germany incorporated under public law, such as the German Social Accident Insurance Institutions, are also required to implement the UN CRPD. These bodies are among those with a particular responsibility for assuring welfare and health.
Action plans with concrete targets, measures and campaigns have the purpose of translating the spirit and provisions of the UN CRPD into specific and binding action.
With its Action Plan, the German Social Accident Insurance aims to make a sustainable contribution of its own to achieving an inclusive society. Its guiding concept has always been that of placing the focus upon human beings.
