Accessibilty for Handicapped in El Salvador

Jaime Vásquez notes [es] on his blog Desde mi silla [From my wheelchair] about accessibility issues for handicapped people in El Salvador and concludes:

La adecuación de espacios para lograr la accesibilidad, constituye la protección de los derechos humanos de las personas con discapacidad, al eliminarse las barreras físicas y sociales y facilitar el acceso, el libre desplazamiento y un mejor aprovechamiento de los espacios públicos.

The adaptation of spaces for accessibility is the protection of human rights for handicapped people, by eliminating physical and social barriers and making access and free movements easier and improving use and enjoyment of public spaces.
