International Day of Persons with Disabilities

This day aims to spread the word about the well-being, dignity, and rights of persons with disabilities.

In 1992, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed the annual observance of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities every December 3rd. The primary purpose of this day is to promote an understanding of disability issues and encourage support for the dignity, rights, and well-being of people with disabilities. It also aims to raise awareness of the benefits of integrating them into all aspects of political, social, economic, and cultural life.

It is a collaborative task for all, including national governments, public and private organizations, and civil society, to find solutions that help make the world more honest and accessible. Since 2019, when the UN launched its Disability Inclusion Strategy, it established that the human rights of all persons with disabilities are inalienable, indivisible, and integral pieces of fundamental freedom.

Here are some data that you might find interesting:

  • 80% of people with disabilities live in developing countries.

  • 46% of people 60 or older are individuals with disabilities.

  • 20% of women are likely to experience some disability in their lifetime.

  • One of every ten children is a child with a disability.

About 15% of the world’s population are people with disabilities. Therefore, it is not simply a matter of justice but an investment in a better future for all.

We can be a part of the awareness by addressing some of the following actions:

  • Please spread the word about the situations of persons with disabilities in all aspects of their social, economic, political, and cultural life.

  • Reinforce the importance of securing persons with disabilities’ rights.
  • Encourage the full, equal, and effective participation of individuals with disabilities in society.

What is this year’s theme?

The International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) in 2023 embodies the powerful theme of “United in action to rescue and achieve the SDGs for, with, and by persons with disabilities.” This theme serves as a rallying call, emphasizing the need for collective efforts to foster inclusivity and ensure the full participation and empowerment of individuals with disabilities in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It underscores the urgency of recognizing the invaluable contributions and perspectives of people with disabilities in shaping a more equitable and sustainable world.

By uniting efforts and prioritizing the voices and needs of persons with disabilities, we can collectively strive toward a world that upholds the principles of equality, dignity, and empowerment for all.
