Welcome to the International Day of Persons with Disabilities Blog Party!

Infinite Ability (the disability SIG of Medical Humanities Group) and Enabling Unit, UCMS & GTB Hospital, Delhi, India is proud to host the first blog party devoted to International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPwD), December 3, 2011. PwD’s, care givers and family members from around the world are invited to share their stories and educate others about how they overcome their disabilities.

The list of disabilities include autism spectrum disorders, blindness, cerebral palsy, chronic neurological conditions, Deaf-blindness, Dwarfism, hemophilia, hearing impairment, intellectual disability, leprosy-cured, locomotor disability, mental illness, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, specific learning disabilities, speech impairment and thalassemia.

The United Nations designated December 3 as IDPwD and the theme of this year is “Together for a better world for all: Including persons with disabilities in development.” In line with the theme and in order to develop awareness on a global level, we solicit blogs from all those who are interested. Beginning November 3, we will start uploading received blogs to celebrate month long activities directed towards IDPwD and culminating on 3rd Dec 2011.

Your contributions are invited by email and selected blogs will be uploaded on the site Infinite Ability.

Happy Blogging!
