This groundbreaking initiative aims to enhance the lives of persons with disabilities in Oman by aligning services, programs, initiatives, and projects with Vision 2040 and empowering individuals through a focus on health, education, rehabilitation, technology, legislation, financing, and strategic goal setting.

This comprehensive approach brings together diverse stakeholders to address the challenges faced by persons with disabilities, fostering a society that embraces inclusion and empowers individuals to reach their full potential. The Disability Services and Programs Development Lab marks a significant step towards achieving Oman’s Vision 2040, a testament to the nation’s commitment to creating a thriving society for all.
