Sign language is a means of communication between
deaf people which uses visual-manual modality, or hand
articulations, to express meanings.
Approximately, 100,000 to 500,000 deaf people around
the world use sign language to communicate.
Ipokrate is observing the International Day of Sign
Languages to celebrate deaf people around the world,
and to raise awareness of the importance of sign
language as a way by which the human rights of deaf
people may be achieved.
