Each year the UN announces a theme to observe for International Day of People with Disability. The theme for IDPwD 2020 is “Building Back Better: toward a disability-inclusive, accessible and sustainable post-COVID-19 World“.

According to the United Nations Organization, “Out of the one billion population of persons with disabilities, 80% live in developing countries. One in every five women is likely to experience disability in her life, while one in every ten children is a child with a disability. An estimated 46% of older people aged 60 years and over are people with disabilities.”
