About World Down Syndrome Day
World Down Syndrome Day is a day in which people with Down syndrome and those with whom they live, work and socialize, organize and participate in activities and events around the world to raise public awareness and create a single, global voice advocating for the rights, inclusion and well-being of people with Down syndrome. The date for World Down Syndrome Day is the 21st day of the 3rd month, selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome. World Down Syndrome Day was first observed in 2006 in many countries around the world, and officially recognized by the United Nations as an annual day of celebration in 2012.
