Abstract

This research was carried out in NUDIPU in Kampala Uganda. The research examined

how much the media covers the day to day activities of the disabled persons in society

and media integration in their lifestyles.

In handling the issue of disability, media has to be on the front line in highlighting the

rights and concerns of PWDs. This includes fully participation in seminars, conferences

and broadcasting their activities not only on world disability Day but through out the year

their plight should be on the spotlight. We have to consider efforts and improvements in

the media sectors targeting social assistance and categorical benefits directed to

improving the conditions of PWDs. This includes gender aspects, equal representation

politically, socially and economically. All these should be highlighted and advocated by

the media since is surveillance in the community.

As the worlds continue to be overtaken by globalization the fate of the disabled persons

continue to be ignored. It is therefore the duty of the media to be on the fore front in

agenda setting and advocating the rights of the disabled persons since it is the watchdog in the society.
