Raise your voice for Duchenne

The World Duchenne Awareness Day 2024 theme is ‘Raise your voice for Duchenne’. World Duchenne Awareness Day (WDAD) is an annual event held on September 7. With this year’s theme, WDAD supports creating a society that provides equal opportunities for all. This year we organize the 11th edition.

This year’s theme emphasizes the importance of amplifying voices to advocate for the rights, inclusion and well-being of people living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and other dystrophinopathies.

On September 7 we invite everyone, irrespective of their personal connection to Duchenne, to join in creating a more inclusive world where people living with disabilities are empowered to thrive.

WDAD Documentary

On September 7, the World Duchenne Organization will launch a WDAD documentary that portrays the lives of people living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy across the globe and to share their journeys, challenges, and successes. The documentary captures the resilience and determination of the Duchenne community in building positive change everyday.
