    [02] European conference opens on 'Media and Disability'

    13/06/2003 23:07:57

    A two-day European conference on ''Media and Disability'', organised by the health and welfare ministry in the framework of the European Union's Greek presidency and the European Year of the disabled in 2003, was inaugurated on Friday by Health and Welfare Minister Costas Stefanis.

    Emphasis was placed during the first day of the conference on the fact that the media must develop and strengthen their cooperation with organisations of disabled people with the purpose of highlighting issues concerning disabled people and improving the way of presentation.

    Speakers at the conference stressed that disabled people continue to be ''invisible citizens'' in European societies due to branding and prejudice.

    ''The way with which disabled people are treated depicts the degree of culture characterising a society,'' Stefanis said in his address.
