1. In adherence to standards set in the Principle 10, States should adopt additional measures to ensure that persons with disabilities have access to reliable and accurate information about all matters relevant for the realisation of their rights on the basis of proactive disclosure, in accessible formats and technologies appropriate to different kinds of disabilities. This should include, in particular, information related to:

a)  Health and health related services, including medical services, medical treatment and their alternatives;

b)  Sexual and reproductive rights;

c)  Social protection and other areas of support, including crisis support;

d)  Rehabilitation and community based rehabilitation services;

e)  Education and employment;

f) Broad range of service deliveries;

g) Publicly funded programs;

h) Housing, including community support, residential support, independent and congregate living facilities and opportunities, assistance with self-care, household care, mobility, leisure, and community participation;

i) Communication support and community access;

j) Information and advice services – including professional, peer support, advocacy, and supported decision-making.

2. Public bodies have a particular duty to ensure that their information is accessible in a range of formats responding to the diverse needs of persons with disabilities, including sign language, Braille, audio, electronic and easy-to-read and understand versions. Such bodies should also be models of best practice for the private sector, and all those providing services to persons with disabilities, who should also be encouraged to adopt such practices.
