International Day of Persons with Disabilities
December 3, 2022
On December 3, we recognize the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD), a time to promote understanding of disability issues and to show support and respect for the well-being and rights of persons with disabilities.
The annual observance of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly resolution 47/3 in 1992. It aims "to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and development, and to increase awareness of on the situation of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life."
The theme of IDPD 2022 is “Transformative solutions for inclusive development: the role of innovation in fuelling an accessible and equitable world”. Join the conversation on social media by using the hashtags #IDPD | #EveryoneIncluded | #CRPD.
