Dec 3 is International Day of Persons with Disabilities

December 3 is International Day of Persons with Disabilities. 29% of adults with disabilities report unmet health care needs compared to 12% of adults without disabilities.

Over one billion people, or approximately 15 per cent of the world’s population, live with some form of disability!

The commemoration of this year’s International Day of Persons with Disabilities provides an opportunity to further raise awareness of disability and accessibility as a cross cutting development issue and further the global efforts to promote accessibility, remove all types of barriers, and to realize the full and equal participation of persons with disabilities in society and shape the future of development for all!
