World Duchenne Awareness Day (WDAD) 2023 Theme Announcement

This year’s World Duchenne Awareness Day (WDAD) theme is Duchenne: Breaking Barriers. WDAD supports creating a society that provides equal opportunities for all. This year is the 10th edition!

People living with Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy (DMD/BMD) face physical, healthcare and social barriers. This severely limits their ability to participate fully in community life and activities. 

On September 7th, we call on you to take on responsibility and help break down barriers for people living with DMD/BMD. 

On this day, we will launch a WDAD Documentary showing the lives of people living with DMD/BMD across the globe and how they are each breaking barriers in their personal lives. 

You will find the banners here, and we will gradually add more materials that can be used to raise awareness.
