FEVEDI: Improving the Quality of Life and Increasing the Rights of People with Disabilities, Their Families, Their Caregivers, and Their Community in Venezuela

The Venezuelan Federation of Associations and Foundations of People with Intellectual and Psychosocial Disabilities and other Integration Disorders (FEVEDI, acronym in Spanish) (in Spanish) is a coalition of foundations and associations in Venezuela focused on improving the quality of life and increasing the rights of people with disabilities, their families, their caregivers, and their community. The organizations within FEVEDI work towards the inclusion of a set of public policies in state and federal laws that guarantee the participation and comprehensive care of Venezuelans with intellectual, developmental, and psychosocial disabilities, and other disorders throughout the country of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. The Federation provides various services to its member organizations, including serving as a link between its member organizations, advises and supports its members on topics of interest to them, and promotes international cooperation between these organizations, among other services and supports. FEVEDI also promotes the creation of national associations where they do not exist and the development of existing organizations, defends the rights and quality of life of people with disabilities, promotes scientific and social research related to intellectual disabilities, and promotes knowledge about intellectual disabilities, psychosocial disabilities, and other disorders, among others. Finally, the Foundation provides links to resources and member organizations (in Spanish) that people with disabilities, their families, caregivers, and communities can use to improve the quality of life and inclusion of people with disabilities in Venezuela.
