    The Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of Armenia has been engaged into a disability assessment reform and introduction of functional and human-rights based approach to disability. As a part of a longer cooperation between the Ministry and SOCIEUX+, this action was particularly focused on linkage between disability assessment and services that persons with disabilities are entitled to receive from social protection system. Experts from Greece and France supported the Ministry in elaboration of guidelines for social workers and members of disability assessment commissions on how to identify beneficiary’s needs for social and functional-related services (including assistive technologies) in line with person’s age, disability type and level, administer those services, monitor their effectiveness and efficiency and evaluate them.
