International Day of Persons with Disabilities 2019

Annually on December 3rd we observe International Day of Persons with Disabilities. This international day began in 1992 and promotes the rights of persons with disabilities in all areas of society and aims to increase awareness of the situations that persons with disabilities face. The goal is to remove the barriers and obstacles they encounter for them to have equal and inclusive access to a sustainable way of life. Learn more about this annual observance, including this year’s theme and the United Nations Disability Inclusion Strategy.
