International Day of Persons with Disabilities, 3 December 2013

On 3 December 2013, the World will be observing the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPwD) was established in 1992 by the United Nations General Assembly to promote awareness of disability issues and the abilities of people with disability.

It is observed worldwide on 3 December each year. This year’s theme is: “Break barriers, open doors: for an inclusive society for all” IARU Region 1 International Programme for Handicapped Amateurs (IPHA), IARU Region 1, recommends that Member Societies observe the day to promote Amateur Radio among Disabled persons.

Include: Observance of the Day provides opportunities for participation by IARU Region1 member Societies to focus on issues related to the inclusion of persons with disabilities in development as Radio Amateurs.

Organise: Hold forums, discussions and information campaigns in support of the theme to find innovative ways and means by which persons with disabilities can become a ham including the arrangements of special programs and licensing mechanism.

Celebrate: Plan or participate in public events to show the contributions made disabled amateurs as agents of change and development in the communities in which they live.

Take Action: A major focus of the Day is practical action to mainstream disability in all aspects of development, as well as to further the participation of persons with disabilities in social life and development on the basis of equality.

Highlight progress and obstacles in implementing disability-sensitive amateur related policies, as well as promote public awareness of barriers to the full inclusion of persons with disabilities in their societies.
