December 03, 2014 - Established in 1992, International Day of People with Disabilities is a United Nations sanctioned day that aims to promote an understanding of people with disabilities and encourage support for their dignity, rights and well-being.
People with disabilities often face barriers, including physical, social, economic, educational, attitudinal and health care barriers. There are many types of disabilities and impairments, both visible and invisible.
More than 1 billion people live with a disability, says the world report on disability, published by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Sandoz works to eliminate the barriers disabled people face in gaining access to healthcare. Our mission is to increase global patient access to high-quality healthcare and to provide an inclusive working environment for all of our associates.
