What is Al-Monasabat Al-Alamiya?
International days, or Al-Monasabat Al Alamiya in Arabic, are occasions to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilise personal will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity.
World Autism Awareness Day
2 April 2021
On World Autism Awareness Day, we recognize and celebrate the rights of persons with autism.
Persons with autism have the right to self-determination, independence and autonomy, as well as the right to education and employment on an equal basis with others.
Universal human rights, including the rights of persons with disabilities, must not be infringed upon in the time of a pandemic. Governments have a responsibility to ensure that their response includes persons with autism. Persons with autism should never face discrimination when seeking medical care. They must continue to have access to the support systems required to remain in their homes and communities through times of crisis, instead of facing the prospect of forced institutionalization.
Why Do We Mark International Days?
SustainableOman, as a supporter of the SDGs and Oman Vision 2040, has embraced them as a a powerful advocacy tool. Each international day offers many actors the opportunity to organise activities related to the theme of the day.
SustainableOman makes an international day, in addition to the Sultanate’s special days, a part of our awareness building campaign.
