It was decided by unanimous agreement that the Platform will priories this subject and do the highest efforts to guarantee the recommendations that will make a difference, specially for the rights of Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Deafened, and Deafblind people, their families and friends. The Platform meets usually every six months.
