NEW DELHI: 21 March 2012 marks the 7th anniversary of World Down Syndrome Day and for the first time in 2012 this day will be officially observed by the United Nations. The date 21 March (21/3) is symbolic, referring to the triplication (trisomy) of chromosome 21 which results in the genetic condition Down syndrome, a naturally occurring chromosomal abnormality universally present across racial, gender or socio-economic lines, which can cause intellectual disability,
associated medical issues and certain physical characteristics.
Approximately 7 million individuals worldwide have Down syndrome. Each year the voice of people with Down syndrome, and those who live and work with them, grows louder. But there is still so much more we can do.
