About Assistive Technology

Today, 2.5 billion people need to use at least one type of AT, such as wheelchairs, hearing aids, prostheses, eyeglasses or digital services, but in low-income countries, over 90% do not have access to it. AT can make a significant difference in a user's ability to participate fully in social, economic, political, cultural, and family life. From supporting persons with disabilities to find meaningful employment to ensuring children with disabilities have access to quality and inclusive education to safeguarding the right of persons with disabilities to adequate healthcare, AT is crucial for a just, inclusive, and productive future for all. On the other hand, lack of access to AT can result in exclusion from education, work.
