Dies ist eine Online-Petition of the European Parliament.


The petitioner is severely disabled: he has diabetes, an amputated leg and a fully paralysed arm. He complains that the Romanian authorities, in particular the National Health Insurance House (CNAS), deny him access to adequate prosthetics and a power wheelchair, in breach of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and of Romanian legislation in force. As a consequence, he is completely immobilised in bed and has a very low quality of life. The petitioner points out that situations like his are very frequent, but that widespread corruption and incompetence in the Romanian national healthcare system and the National Authority for Persons with Disabilities (ANPD) dissuades very vulnerable persons with disabilities from claiming their rights and entitlements.

Thank you for your support, Constantin Vladescu
