Accessibility is a very important part of the inclusion of people with disabilities. An accessible barrier free environment is the first step towards fulfilling the right of people with disabilities to participate in all areas of community life. Accessibility is a very broad term covering all aspects of assuring that disabled people can participate and have the same choices as non-disabled community members. This includes: access to transportation; election access; access to water supply and sanitation; technology access; appropriate sources of communication and media to ensure information; and an infrastructure that breaks down all physical barriers preventing equal access for disabled persons as the members of a community.
