Síndrome de Down

Down Syndrome


We at the Library wanted to join in the celebration of World Down Syndrome Day with this guide. Last November 9, the United Nations officially approved that March 21 be declared World Down Syndrome Day. This declaration is the result of the work of a multitude of Down syndrome organizations around the world, including DOWN ESPAÑA, which was part of the promoter group to obtain international support for the resolution. This initiative aims to raise awareness and understanding of Down syndrome, an intellectual disability that affects nearly 7 million people worldwide and occurs in 1 in every 800 births, irrespective of race, gender or socioeconomic status. This date will also help to promote the rights of people with Down syndrome so that they can enjoy a full and dignified life and be active citizens in society.
