December 3 - International Day of Persons with Disabilities
Since 1992, the United Nations have made the International Day of Persons with Disabilities an international observance. With varying themes each year, the day focuses on raising awareness of the various issues individuals with disabilities face in their lives. In 2015, the theme involves “Inclusion Matters.” The sub-themes are focused on improving the data and statistics of disabilities, making areas more accessible and inclusive for all individuals, and including those with invisible disabilities in both development and society.
The belief behind the International Day of Persons with Disabilities is to include individuals with disabilities in all types of society without barriers. This is a benefit to all people and providing accessibility is necessary for progress.
Did you know that there are more than 1 billion individuals living with some type of disability? This is roughly 15% of the world’s population and a majority of these individuals live in under-developed countries.
