Down syndrome is the most common genetic condition in the world today and India has one of the highest incidences of Down syndrome. In spite of that, awareness about this condition is so low, most people tend to confuse persons with Down syndrome with other intellectual disabilities. The Down Syndrome Federation of India would like to break the myths associated with Down syndrome and help make people more aware about it and help break various taboos related to this condition.
Persons with Down syndrome have achieved a lot in the fields of art, sports and cultural activities. What is needed is a change in the mindsets of people. In order to do this, DSFI is proud to present the 1st India International Down Syndrome Conference in Delhi on the 9th and 10th of September 2017.
