No provisions were found.

This section to be updated soon.

There is no specific legislation or provisions found regarding ending discrimination against family carers (of people with dementia or other disability).

Similarly, in promotion of good mental health, the mental health policy (Ministry of Health, 2015c) aims at involving persons with mental disorders and caregivers in planning and feedback of mental health services.
