The Secretary-General’s Message Commemorating World Autism Awareness Day

Breaking Barriers: Empowering Individuals with Autism through Investments in Support Systems and Inclusive Education

Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental condition that affects millions of people around the world. Despite their unique abilities and contributions, individuals with autism often face significant challenges when it comes to accessing basic rights such as education, employment, and societal involvement. These challenges are outlined in the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

To address these challenges and empower individuals with autism to live fulfilling lives, governments must prioritize investments in comprehensive support systems, inclusive educational initiatives, and technology-driven solutions. By collaborating closely with individuals with autism and their advocates at both the national and local levels, we can create a more equitable and welcoming environment for all.

Today marks World Autism Awareness Day, a time to recognize and celebrate the valuable contributions of individuals with autism around the globe. Let us use this opportunity to come together as a global community to advocate for their rights and work towards a more inclusive world for everyone.
