Dia Internacional dos Deficientes Físico
(International Day of People with Disability). In 1976, the UN General Assembly proclaimed 1981 as the International Year of Disabled People, and the period 1983-1992 as the Decade of Disabled Peoples. Since 1992, 3 December is promoted as the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. Over one billion people, about 15 percent of the world’s population, live with some form of disability. Most of them face physical, social, economic and attitudinal barriers that exclude them from participating fully and effectively as equal members of society. In 2006, the Convention on the Rights of People with Disability was adopted by the UN General Assembly. The Convention is intended as a human rights instrument with an explicit, development dimension.
