International Day of Persons with Disabilities 2021

This year, #IDPWD21 celebrates the challenges, barriers, and opportunities for people who live with disabilities, in the context of a global pandemic. We call on domestic and international public health officials, political representatives, advocates, supporters, and every citizen in every community, to learn from the experiences of people living with disabilities during this pandemic, and push for more meaningful investments into the socioeconomic building blocks which will reduce the barriers faced by people with disabilities in every community on earth. With carefully curated book chapters and journal articles, our IDPWD special issue is our part to fight for the rights of people with disabilities in the post-COVID era.
