While Uganda has a progressive legal framework for accessibility, its implementation remains a challenge. Many public buildings and facilities are not yet accessible, and individuals with disabilities continue to face discrimination and stigma. Nonetheless, the Disability Act has had a positive impact in raising awareness about disability rights and promoting inclusion.
The NCPD has played a vital role in coordinating efforts to implement the Disability Act. It has developed guidelines for accessibility and has engaged in advocacy campaigns to raise awareness about the rights of persons with disabilities.

However, there are still challenges such as;
*Limited funding for accessibility projects
* Lack of enforcement of accessibility standards
* Persistent discrimination and stigma
* Inefficient health care systems that fail to adequately address the needs of individuals with disabilities
