UN chief calls for greater investment to help countries address autism

The annual observance of World Autism Awareness Day should spur global action to combat the "unacceptable" discrimination, abuse and isolation that people with the disorder and their loved ones face, according to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.



"Autism is not limited to a single region or a country; it is a worldwide challenge that requires global action," states Mr. Ban's message for the Day, observed annually on 2 April. "People with autism are equal citizens who should enjoy all human rights and fundamental freedoms."
