Moreover, the participation of organized civil society is fundamental in the development of the plan and in its implementation and follow-up. Additional information The National Plan has been conceived taking a public policy approach, as a process, that is, as the result of the interaction and coordination of different political actors from the three branches of government and Civil Society in general, who have worked since the design stage in a spirit of consensus and who will actively participate in its implementation, follow-up, evaluation and monitoring. That is why strategic guideline number 5 of the plan is follow-up, evaluation and public dissemination of the plan. It was created with the objective of eliminating the barriers and obstacles that impede the access of persons with disabilities to recognition as subjects of law and to the protection of these rights. In this sense, it aims to break down judicial, physical, institutional, cultural and social barriers that prevent access to justice and, especially, to address the issue of disability using the social model set out in the International Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, shifting from a model of substitution of persons with disabilities to a model of support. Currently, there are three working groups organized under the following themes: 1 – Regulatory Adaptation Group, 2 – Disability, Tertiary and University Education, 3 – Disability and Deprivation of Liberty. Within the framework of these working groups, a survey was carried out to gauge tertiary level curricular offerings on the subject of disability. At present, a survey on universal accessibility is being carried out at the State and tertiary education levels. Together with the National Directorate of Monitoring and Evaluation of the Ministry of Social Development, a questionnaire is being prepared to assess compliance with the rest of the actions envisaged in the Plan.
