Everyone has the right to a standard of living and well-being of herself/himself and his/her family, but for homeless persons, it is just a thought. A homeless person has always been marginalized and has been economically disadvantaged and is but unable to acquire a secure livelihood, education, health etc. Women became more vulnerable in this case. Globalization changed the face of the world but created economic disparities among people adding to the number of the homeless.
The report explains how the current treatment gap and the increasing numbers of homelessness show the government’s weak policy implementation and denial of legal rights.
Reports also talks about, mentally ill and homeless persons, how systematic exclusion by society and institutions throw them in extreme vulnerabilities and they have to suffer from the double burden of abject social, economic and political deprivation.
