On 25 May 2013 in Serbia, Sandra, 8, who has Down Syndrome, plays with a ball, at a UNICEF-supported centre that provides community-based services for children with disabilities and their families, in the town of Ivanjica. Despite growth in the availability of such services, access remains limited. New social policy, introduced in 2011, provides a comprehensive framework for the provision of community-based services and introduced significant changes in the way they are licensed, provided, monitored and financed.
