International Day of People with Disabilities
What is International Day of People with Disabilities?
International Day of People with Disabilities (IDPD) is a United Nations (UN) sanctioned day celebrated annually on 3 December. This important day aims to raise awareness and promote action around the rights of people with disabilities and their full inclusion in society.
CBM Australia encourages people to share the message of inclusion and diversity on IDPD so that collectively we can truly build a world where all people are included and valued as equal members of society. The COVID-19 pandemic has been catastrophic for people with disabilities, having widespread impacts on individuals and communities around the world.
