For six years the Principality of Monaco has been associated with the commemoration of the United Nations International Day of Disabled Persons, held each year on December 5.

The Department of Health and Social Affairs – through the Social Inclusion and Disability Division of the Directorate of Action and Social Aid – organised a Monegasque Meeting on Disability, held at the Auditorium of the Monaco Technical and Hotel School on Tuesday, in the presence of Didier Gamerdinger, Minister of Health and Social Affairs.

A presentation was made by Marie-José Schmitt, Vice-President of European Action for the Disabled, on the rights of persons with disabilities in relation to the convention.

Earlier this year, on September 19, Prince Albert took part in the opening of the General Debate of the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly. Before delivering His Address, the Sovereign Prince had deposited the Instrument of Ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The convention was made enforceable in the Principality by Sovereign Order of November 2, 2017.
