The Mexican State has a robust regulatory framework in regards to guaranteeing the rights of people with disabilities. Before law, people with disabilities are classified as a vulnerable group by Article 1 of the Constitution. Additionally, Mexico has ratified many international agreements dealing with this topic, mainly the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. In addition, it has several local and federal laws for inclusion of people with disabilities, as well as public policies and programs seeking to fulfill the commitment made internationally. The government, however, grapples with how to provide equality in key areas such as education, employment, health and accessibility. In reality, many people with disabilities turn to civil society for support, services and care which are obligations of the State. Thus, civil society fulfills a very important social function, and has the potential to be a big influencer of disabled public policies in Mexico.
