China will promote the construction of a barrier-free environment for the disabled in 100 cities by the year 2010, said the National Human Rights Action Plan of China (2009-2010) released Monday by the Information Office of the State Council.

Assistance techniques or substitute technologies such as Braille, sign language, captions and special communication facilities are to be adopted to pave the way for the disabled to participate in social activities, the plan said.

TV programs with sign language and special broadcasting programs for the disabled are to be launched, together with the subtitling of TV programs and films.

The plan said that during 2009-2010, standardized community rehabilitation services will be carried out nationwide in 80 percent of urban districts and 70 percent of counties, which will benefit 2 million disabled people. The provision of community or household services is encouraged for people suffering from intelligence or mental disabilities and diseases, as well as for seriously disabled people.

There are over 83 million people with various kinds of disabilities in China, accounting for 6.34 percent of the total population.
