World Down Syndrome
21 March 2015 will mark the 10th anniversary of World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD), a day dedicated to advocating for the rights, inclusion and wellbeing of people with Down syndrome which is recognized by the United Nations and observed all over the world. The date 21.3 symbolizes the triplication of chromosome 21 which is unique to people with Down syndrome.
