United Nations theme for World Disability Day calls for inclusion
The United Nations organization and its agencies will observe the International Day of Disabled Persons on 3 December.
This year the theme of disability day is Transformation towards sustainable and resilient society for all.
The aim of the day is to ensure that awareness is created about the various disabilities.
The lack of social awareness and information creates barriers in the life of people with disabilities.
For the welfare and development of people with disability, a barrier free and inclusive social set up is required.
In India, the Accessible India Campaign launched under the Article 9 of UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is making slow progress in the field.
