Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology (AT) — products like wheelchairs, prosthetics, hearing aids, eyeglasses, and personal assistive devices — help people maintain or improve their wellbeing and independence. AT also includes any systems or services that support people in accessing and using AT products. 

Over five years, AT2030 will test ‘what works’ to improve access to AT and will invest in and support solutions to scale with a focus on innovative products, new service models, and global capacity support. The programme will reach 9 million directly and 6 million more people indirectly to enable a lifetime of potential through life-changing Assistive Technology.

By bringing partners who traditionally don’t work together, including people who haven’t worked before in the Assistive Technology space, we know there will be difficult conversations. However, these interactions have already started to pay dividends with new thinking and approaches being tested in over ten countries.

AT2030 Scoping Report

The AT2030 Programme tests new approaches to find “what works” in the AT field.

Funded by UK aid from the UK Govermenment, the Assistive Technology Scoping Excercise focused on mapping and analysis of the innovation landscape around Assistive Technology globally with a focus on low and middle-income countries to highlight potential market failures and to scope out possible solutions.
