This is a key objective as the world is putting in effort to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, António Guterres, UN Secretary-General (UNSG), stated.

Recovery is also an opening to rethink present education and training systems to guarantee that people with autism have opportunities to develop their own potential, Guterres said.

For this population, he stressed, access to decent work under equal conditions requires the creation of an enabling environment, along with reasonable adaptations.

According to UN reports, the pandemic brought to light and exacerbated glaringly obvious inequalities around the globe especially in income and wealth distribution, access to health care, protection from law as well as political inclusion.

People with autism have long faced such inequalities and the pandemic contributed to making them worse, the UN official website explained.
