1) In Cambodia, in all aspects of society the moral model dominates other two. Medical model are perceived and used by medical professionals and formal sector including regulator responsible for disability. However, civil society orgnisaitons and professional working for disability are using the social model. In short, this latest model is predominantly among advocators and developmental partners.

2) When I see a person with impairment, I would not call or count them a person with a disability. I am working in disability sector for more than two decades thus I do not jump to a conclusion that everyone with a disability is a person with disability. I am promoting the social model for disability because this one will help a person be as independent as possible in all aspects including health, rehabilitation,… socioeconomics and politics. Even my physiotherapy service also for the ultimate goal of social model for a person/client.
