The International Day for People with Disabilities was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1992. Since then, it has been observed globally, bringing attention to the rights and well-being of people with disabilities. Each year, IDPD focuses on a specific theme to shed light on critical issues affecting the disabled community.
