Simon Petridisi: ‘During the Crisis, Addressing Shortcomings in Providing Services to People with Disabilities Should Be Prepared Quickly’

Simon Petridisi, Consultant to the President of Georgia on Issues of Persons with Disabilities, participated in the workshop of the “European Network on Independent Living”, held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The sides discussed problems caused by the new Coronavirus, ways how to defeat it, prospects in developing services for persons with disabilities, and upcoming initiatives. 

As Simon Petridisi emphasized at the meeting, projects to address the shortcomings in supplying adequate services to people with disabilities during the crisis should be prepared in a timely manner.

The participants of the workshop agreed that they will deepen cooperation with European institutions on this matter.
