Medical Support

One of the objectives of establishing the Association is to provide equal access of health services to the people with disabilities in the country. In Bhutan, the healthcare system is free to all citizens and thus health deteriorating factors could be less. However, due to poverty among the people with disabilities in rural areas, they are unable to avail free health services when they are referred to the national hospital in Thimphu.  Thus, DPAB provides transportation and accommodation allowances to the patient with disabilities and to their caregivers when they come to Thimphu to avail health services.
