NUMBERS SYNDROME

Down syndrome has been recognized, at least, since the fifth century.
However, to this day, we still do not know the actual numbers for this population.
If the government does not register people with Down syndrome, it excludes them from any public policy and affects their rights.

Welcome to the
first dynamic tool
that helps people with
Down syndrome
thrive.

This database shows numbers from this population for the first time, generating in real time statistics and demands addressed to the state agencies responsible for resolving them.
