International Day of Persons with Disabilities
December 3 is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. This memorable date covers the entire human population of our planet. In accordance with General Assembly resolution 47/3 of October 14, 1992, after the end of the UN Decade dedicated to the problems of persons with disabilities, it was decided to celebrate the Day of Disabled Persons annually.
• Do you know that 80% of people with disabilities live in developing countries.
• An estimated 46% of seniors aged 60 and over are disabled.
• 10% of the world's children are disabled.
• People with disabilities are most affected by COVID-19.

As you know, it is more difficult for people with disabilities to get access to education, health care and more. During the COVID-19 period, this phenomenon has become even more difficult. To remedy the situation, comprehensive measures are needed. The adoption of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2006 was a logical continuation of the UN's many years of work in this area. And the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and a number of major global development strategies provide a framework for further advancement of the rights of persons with disabilities.

The purpose of this day is to promote the rights of persons with disabilities in all spheres of public life, as well as to draw the attention of the general public to the problems associated with this topic. The number of people with disabilities is increasing every year. Society is obliged to maintain an environment in which all people would be comfortable coexisting with each other. It is important to pay attention to this since childhood, to bring up this feeling and increase it over the years.
