Roughly 650 million people, worldwide, live with a disability. Not all disabilities are visible.
International Day of Persons with Disabilities was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1992, and observed annually, on December third.
The International Day of Persons with Disabilities celebrates and values diversity, both locally and globally. It’s a day to try and understand and learn from people who live with disabilities. It’s a day to move towards a future where people are distinguished by their abilities, and it’s a day to take action and commit to creating a world of equality.
