Priority list


1. To draw attention to the RS Government that, in addition to fellow citizens over the age of 65, persons with disabilities are among the most vulnerable sections of the population. Whether due to the underlying condition or the accompanying secondary consequences of disability, persons with disabilities are particularly exposed to the possibility of respiratory infections which can have fatal consequences for these persons.
