While in Sri Lanka, individuals with disabilities may find accessibility and accommodation very different from what you find in the United States. The Sri Lankan Supreme Court has directed that steps be taken to provide easy access for persons with disabilities to public buildings. Although there are regulations on accessibility in place, in practice accommodation for access to buildings is rare and movement on sidewalks, streets, and other thoroughfares can be very difficult. The road network in Sri Lanka is improving, but many roads are still in medium to poor condition, and sidewalks and road crossings in most major towns are congested with vendors, stray dogs, and groups of people loitering on street corners. Potholes, sidewalks in poor repair, and lack of wheelchair access in most buildings limit access and movement for people with disabilities.
