World Down Syndrome Day: Leave No One Behind (Part 1)

We celebrated World Down Syndrome Day on 21 March, with the call to “leave no one behind”. Children with Down syndrome need full and fair access to health services, supportive care and education, so that they can live their best lives possible. Choo Li-Hsian, parent of a child with Down syndrome, joins consultant developmental paediatrician Dr Rajini Sarvananthan, for a conversation on how to help parents navigate from diagnosis to daily life. This will be a two-part series, and we’ll be continuing the conversation in April.
