International Day of People with Disability Celebrate, Reflect, Act
The 3 December each year is the United Nations International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD). This IDPwD, Disabled People’s Organisations Australia (DPO Australia) celebrates the achievements and contributions of people with disability, reflects on our gains in creating equity and inclusion, and continues to act to make our human rights a reality.

It further identifies the CEO of NEDA as being a “DDA25” Council member.
NEDA confirms that neither we nor any member of the NEDA council or the NEDA staff, are in any way associated with this publication. We do not endorse or support the Faircount Media Group or the above-mentioned publications.
