  7. Breaking the vicious circle of disability and extreme poverty

    Observed on 17 October each year, the day aims to promote awareness of the need to eradicate poverty and destitution worldwide.

Inclusion in all development activities is critical to breaking the cycle of poverty and disability.

    “Safety and health in the use of chemicals at work“ is the theme for the 2014 World Day for Safety and Health at Work.
