While in the DRC, individuals with disabilities may find accessibility and accommodation very different from what you find in the United States. The constitution prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities, stipulates that all citizens regardless of their abilities have access to public services, including education, and provides that persons with disabilities are afforded specific protections by the government. The government does not effectively enforce these provisions, and persons with disabilities often find it difficult to obtain employment, education, or government services. The law does not mandate access to buildings or government services for persons with disabilities. In general, the accessibility of facilities in the DRC (including public transportation, public roads, taxis, lodging, restaurants, and other tourist locations) is poor or non-existent, and individuals with disabilities may find it very difficult to get around the country.
