21 March: World Down Syndrome Day. World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) is observed on 21 March every year. On this day, people with Down syndrome and those who live and work with them throughout the world organise and participate in activities and events to raise public awareness and create a single global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusion and well being of people with Down syndrome. The WDSD website, managed by DSi, is a hub of activity taking place around 21 March each year.
