In this regulation mandating support programs for persons with disabilities include the establishment of a National Disability Commission, Cards for Persons with Disabilities, Sign Language as the official language for persons with sensory disabilities and so on. This regulation mandates the government to compile implementing regulations to accommodate the implementation of law number 8 of 2016 no later than 2 (two) years from the date the regulation is promulgated.

The government's efforts to realize respect, promotion, protection and fulfillment of human rights and basic freedoms of persons with disabilities in full and equal have been carried out by ratifying the CRPD and issuing Law Number 8 of 2016 concerning Persons with Disabilities.
