Awareness Campaign in Japan

Many countries are WAY behind when it comes to awareness, support, and public/institutional response to Ds. Japan happens to be one of those countries.

In honor of Japan's "Down Syndrome Day" this past Spring, a national awareness campaign was launched with 4 advertisements. I thought these were great... thanks to Monica who found them and forwarded them to me for some research I'm doing.


And you can visit the Japan Down Syndrome Network (in Japanese or English translation) if you're interested in learning more about this overseas organization.
