About this event
The International Day of Persons with Disabilities is an annual event to celebrate people with disabilities.
The World Health Organisation estimates that more than one billion people - about 15% of the world's population - experience some form of disability.
The day aims to spread awareness and understanding of disabilities that might not be immediately visible, such as mental illness, chronic pain or fatigue and learning disabilities.
