International Access to Information Day (‘IAID 2020’), also known as Right to Know Day, is held on 28 September every year and recognises the community’s right to access government-held information.  IAID 2020 explores the theme: Building trust through transparency.

The 74th United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 28 September as the International Day for Universal Access to Information (IDUAI) in October 2019.

It is a global week long celebration raising awareness of the importance of open government, and the public’s right to access government-held information ensuring transparency and accountability in policy making, administrative decision making and government service delivery.
