International Day of Persons with Disabilities, 2021
Today is United Nations International Day of People with disabilities. The theme highlighted for this year by WHO is ‘Leadership and participation of persons with disabilities toward an inclusive, accessible and sustainable post-COVID-19 world’.
It is important to promote an understanding of disability issues and support the dignity, rights and wellbeing. One billion, i.e., 15% of world’s population lives with a disability and anyone can experience disability at some point in life.
