The day was created to celebrate the lives of people with Down’s syndrome to have the same freedom & opportunity like everyone else. There are many reasons behind this, but amongst dentist it is the lack of knowledge & awareness in treating children with disabilities. To counter this vacuum, we the department of Pedodontics & Preventive dentistry  made an awareness campaign on the occasion of “World Down’s Syndrome Awareness Day – 2022 “, to all students & faculty members of RVS Dental College & Hospital through a presentation with theme ” Inclusion Means” for the year 2022 & the theme is yellow & blue, which was the color code of the Programme too.
