Tuvalu prohibits discrimination on the basis of physical, sensory, intellectual, or mental disability. Supplementary state services to address the special needs of persons with disabilities are very limited. There are no mandated building accessibility provisions for persons with disabilities. The one multi-story government building has elevators, but they were recently found to be not operational. There were no elevators in other multi-story buildings. The Fusi Alofa Association (Tuvalu National Disabled Persons Organization) and the Tuvalu Red Cross are useful points of contact for additional accessibility questions. The Community Affairs Department in the Ministry of Home Affairs and Rural Development is responsible for protecting the rights of persons with disabilities.
