Secretary-General's message on World Autism Awareness Day [scroll down for French version]

The United Nations supports the rights of persons with autism to fully participate in society, in line with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. 
In its pledge to leave no one behind, the 2030 Agenda represents a commitment to reducing inequality through social, economic and political inclusion for all people, including persons with disabilities.  Yet many persons with autism still live in isolation, discriminated against and disconnected from their communities, in institutions or even in their own homes.
