Making Mexico City more accessible for disabled people

Advocacy group Independent Living says only 10 percent of disabled people are integrated into mainstream Mexican society.

    Mexico City is beginning to improve facilities for people with disabilities somewhat, with many subway stations now equipped with lifts.

    But a large part of the disabled population still remains shut out due to the poor infrastructure and services.

    One organisation is trying to change that, as Al Jazeera's Manuel Rapalo reports from Mexico City.
