World Autism Awareness Day” was passed in council on 1 November 2007, and adopted on 18 December 2007. It was proposed by the United Nations representative from Qatar, Her HighnessSheikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al-Missned,Consort of His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, the Emir of the State of Qatar, and supported by all member states.
This resolution was passed and adopted without a vote in the UN General Assembly, mainly as a supplement to previous UN initiatives to improve human rights. Since its inception autism awareness and research around the world has increased as a result.
World Autism Day is one of only four official health-specific UN Days. The day itself brings individual autism organizations together all around the world to aid in things like research, diagnoses, treatment, and overall acceptance for those with this neurological variance.
Today, the world is turning blue in honor of World Autism Awareness Day due to the Light it Up Blue, a campaign spearheaded by the autism community that aims to foster understanding and acceptance for those with autism.
Let’s express our support and ensure that the children, women and men with autism get equal rights and participation in every sphere of life. They need understanding and personal approach to thrive!
I know sometimes it can be challenging but with constant efforts and outflow of love these individuals can live above autism!
