The Declaration on the Rights of Disabled Persons was a declaration of the General Assembly of the United Nations, made on 9 December 1975. It is the 3447th resolution made by the Assembly.

As a resolution of the Assembly, it is not binding on member nations, but it forms a framework that may be drawn on for the purposes of international and domestic law.

It consists of a lengthy preamble, and thirteen clauses that broadly promote the rights of those with disabilities.

In 2007 the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities was adopted.[1]
