What is Numbers Syndrome?

Numbers Syndrome sheds light on a population that is largely invisible to society: people with Down syndrome. And the only way to change this reality is through numbers.

Their under-identification, underrepresentation, and exclusion altogether from official statistics in Argentina and across the world diminish their chances to survive and thrive along with their prospects for a bright future.
Without current and accurate data, the Argentine government and its ministries cannot address the challenges and discrimination they encounter, nor create public policies that guarantee their rights, as required by the International Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

To ensure no one is left behind, the Down syndrome Association of Argentina (ASDRA) has created the first dynamic database of people with Down Syndrome. It gathers and updates their numbers and collects essential information, making them visible to a society that has lost sight of them for too long.

Our goal is to develop statistics that make visible the problems of a person with Down syndrome, generate demands in real time and push for those responsible to take immediate action. Through these numbers, we can voice their needs.
