International Day of Persons with Disabilities14th December 2021 / Posted by David Ebbrell
Friday 3rd December marked the 29th UN-supported International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPWD). The 2021 theme is ‘Fighting for rights in the post-COVID era” which examines the challenges and barriers and celebrates the opportunities for people who live with disabilities in the context of a global pandemic.
Those with disabilities have been hit disproportionately hard by Covid, with reduced access to routine health care and rehabilitation services, more pronounced social isolation and a lack of emergency preparedness for people with special needs.
