The official documentary for World Duchenne Awareness Day 2023 is now live! The WDAD Documentary: Breaking Barriers is directed by Nicoletta Madia and produced by Arimvideo.

The documentary is portraying stories from Italy, Turkey and Mexico about people living with Duchenne and their families and how they overcome barriers, everyday.

The official theme for World Duchenne Awareness Day 2023 is Breaking Barriers. People living with Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy (DMD/BMD) face physical, healthcare and social barriers. This severely limits their ability to participate fully in community life and activities. That’s why on September 7th we call on you to take on responsibility and help break down barriers for people living with DMD/BMD. Only together as a society can we create an inclusive society and build a better future.
