The International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) is a yearly event established by the United Nations in 1992. It aims to enhance awareness of disability issues and rally support for the dignity, rights, and well-being of persons with disabilities. The theme for 2023 is “United in action to rescue and achieve the SDGs for, with and by persons with disabilities.”

On December 3, WHO joins global partners to advocate for the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for persons with disabilities. Over 1.3 billion people, constituting 16% of the global population, experience significant disability, facing higher mortality rates and increased health risks.


To address these health inequities, the Disability Inclusion Strategy (UNDIS) was launched in 2019 by UN Secretary-General António Guterres. It has facilitated substantial progress in incorporating disability inclusion across the entire UN system.


Originally called the “International Day of Disabled Persons” until 2007, the IDPD focuses on diverse issues each year. In 1976, the UN proclaimed 1981 as the International Year of Disabled Persons, emphasizing equal opportunities, rehabilitation, and disability prevention. The theme was “Full Participation and Equality,” promoting the right of persons with disabilities to actively engage in societal development with equal living conditions and shared benefits of socio-economic progress. The IDPD continues to be a vital platform for advancing the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities globally.
