Each year on December 3, the UN observes the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. This year’s theme is Together for a better world for all: including persons with disabilities in development.
The observance of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities strives to promote awareness of disability issues, as well as gain support for the rights of persons with disabilities. It also aims to increase awareness of successes made from the integration of persons with disabilities in all aspects of life – political, social, economic and cultural.
