Ibni, meaning both my child and build, was founded by the families of children with disabilities and people with disabilities in Jordan. With lack of vocational rehabilitation services for people with disabilities in governmental health centers, families were emotionally and economically exhausted. Without these health services, people with disabilities are prevented from being equal citizens and face health dangers that are unnecessary had they enjoyed their right to health care and vocational rehabilitation.
The campaign’s strategic goal in 2021 was to get the Ministry of Health to declare its commitment to equip 12 health centres with vocational care services for people with disabilities before the end of 2022. After a series of collective action, and creative tactics, the campaign succeeded in signing a memorandum of understanding with the Ministry of Health and the Higher Council for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The MOU agrees that the MoH will prepare for and equip 12 rehabilitation centres across Jordan during 2022. The campaign continues to monitor and hold the Ministry accountable to its implementation plan.
