Financing Disability Seminar


In Spain, the Spanish Bill for the promotion of personal autonomy and care for persons with dependency was approved in 2006. The 2009 report by the Expert Group designed by the Spanish Congress identified the achievements and failures of the new disability scheme with a main focus on financing issues. The experience in Spain and in other European countries may contribute to better design and implement disability schemes in other regions of the world, particularly in a context of reshaping welfare states for a more sustainable finance.
