5. Integrate

Strengthen systems to make inclusion a reality.

We’ll embed disability innovation into national policy landscapes, stimulating demand, activating country pilots and creating enabling markets environment in Low-and Middle- Income Countries.

A new country office Africa (Rwanda) will build impact and partnership, exploring new opportunities for insight, knowledge and research - testing country implementation and providing technical assistance across AT2030 priority countries.

We’ll explore the intersecting challenges to enabling environment for AT access experienced by disabled people, with a focus on inclusive cities and infrastructure, climate and crisis resilience, and gender. Building evidence and driving action we’ll develop a global strategy on Inclusive Climate Resilient Infrastructure - creating a model of technical support and a city pilot for inclusive climate solutions with equity at it's core.

Continuing to work with WHO to deliver the commitments in the Global Report on AT, we will support the development of the Global Guidelines on Provision of AT, implementing country-led strategies and the roll-out of WHO’s Training in Assistive Products (TAP) at a national level.

We’ll also research the impact of incorporating AT products in the UNICEF catalogue and action plan to further accelerate impact to mainstream AT supply.
