International Day of Persons with Disability 2019

On 3 December 2019, we are inviting ISPO members, partners and friends to join #ISPOWER on social media to celebrate the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) and promote the empowerment of persons with disabilities and an inclusive and equal society for all.

What is #ISPOWER?

#ISPOWER is ISPO’s call to action for improved access to Assistive Health Technology (AHT) & care to help people with impaired mobility participate fully in society. Through #ISPOWER, together we raise public and decision makers’ awareness and understanding of the importance of P&O and AHT care in helping to transform the lives of people with impaired mobility and integrate them into society.

Join us in celebrating ISPOWER on the occasion of IDPD on 3 December! You have time until November 29!

This year’s theme is “Promoting the participation of persons with disabilities and their leadership: taking action on the 2030 Development Agenda”.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED? Watch the video!

Please post all images/videos that illustrate the importance of empowerment and social inclusion of people with disabilities and impaired mobility on ISPO social media:


Submissions for the #ISPOWER photo/video contest are open until 29 November 2019.
