Disability and work
International Day of Persons with Disabilities - 3 December 2010
This year's theme is 'Keeping the promise: Mainstreaming disability in the Millennium Development Goals towards 2015 and beyond'. It aims to ensure that disability and the concerns of people with disabilities are included in the commitments to end global poverty made by the international community. The inclusion of persons with disabilities in all development activities is essential to realizing the MDGs and other development goals.
This year’s Day will serve as a reminder to governments, global leaders, policy-makers and other stakeholders to keep up their efforts on behalf of disability-inclusive development.
