The lack of attention to this problem in the republican and colonial stage is shown, departing from a variety unfavorable socioeconomic determining factors, that situation has improved significantly since the triumph of the revolution. Facing disability has the historically conditioned need of a social system that guarantee the necessary human and material resources, to give answer to this complex problem, which is only achieved with the active participation of the State.
