Building an Inclusive Society – International Day of Persons with Disabilities

On December 3rd, the United Nations will celebrate International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The theme for 2015 is “Inclusion matters: Access and empowerment for people of all abilities.” The work of the NIDILRR community fits in very well with this theme and we’d like to introduce you to some (but hardly all) of the projects currently at work in the sub-theme areas:

Making cities inclusive and accessible for all:

Improving disability data and statistics:

Including persons with invisible disabilities in society and development:

This is just a glimpse at the work of the NIDILRR community to support the full inclusion of people with disabilities in the communities of their own choosing. We invite you to explore the current group of more than 250 active projects in our Program Database and to browse through our collection indexed in REHABDATA.
