Why is it important?

France is home to 5 million people with disabilities. Despite the law of February 11, 2005, which aimed to improve their integration, there is still a long way to go before they will be able to choose, decide and fully take their place in society.

Focus: private and sexual lives of the disabled

Sexual expression is an essential component of every disabled person’s freedom. Sexuality is not limited to genitality; rather, it includes other dimensions such as the strengthening of social ties, self-esteem, affection, the relationship with the body, and parenthood, which must be included in a wider approach to social and civic life that relies on the principle of self-determination.
