Disability groups fight to end segregation of people with disability in Australia

Advocacy groups say the commission must recognise that segregation of people with disability is discrimination and a breach of human rights under the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (of which Australia is a signatory).

Carolyn Frohmader, the CEO of Women with Disabilities Australia (WWDA), said while the commission has committed to making recommendations within a rights-based framework, it is yet to fully indicate whether it considers segregation to be a human rights breach.
