To this effect, an aid agreement for the Programme of Comprehensive and Integrated Support to People with Disabilities for the 2013-2015 period was signed between USAID and Da Nang representatives in the city on March 21.

Under the programme, supervisors in the sectors of labour, war invalids and social affairs, health care, education will be trained in social works, shift management and community-based functional rehabilitation for the disabled.
