Tshering Penjor

Currently in Bhutan, it is generally the medical and social model of disability. Medical model because people think everything can be fixed or mended by surgery or medicines and that concept is even at the level of health care professionals. Due to this the rehabilitation usually gets delayed and ignored.

The public structures and buildings are not so disable friendly and accessible. Even the footpaths and ramps are built inappropriately. But the place where i was born and brought up still adheres with the traditional model and ignores the peoples with disabilities.
