The Autism Society Philippines Angels Walk for Autism is an annual advocacy event that has been held since 2007. It has grown from 200 to 15,000 participants in 2016. Over the last 10 years, it has become the kick-off event of the Philippine National Autism Consciousness Week -- an observance made possible by Philippine President Fidel Ramos' Proclamation 711 of 1996.
The ASP’s Autism-OK Philippines campaign serves as a springboard for public awareness, private sector involvement and inclusion of the autism agenda in government social development initiatives. #aokPH
In 2016, the ASP welcomed fellow advocates from Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam to the Philippines bringing to the fore how autism advocacy has become a genuine global movement.
