Para Sport Against Stigma is led by Loughborough University (LUL) - builds on lessons learned from London 2012. The programme uses a four-pillar approach towards overcoming the role of stigma in the adoption of AT, consisting of education, athlete development, Paralympic broadcast and action research activities. 

The aim of the programme is to tackle discrimination and stigma in order to increase Assistive Technology (AT) adoption in Malawi, Zambia and Ghana through a four-pillar approach (education, athlete development, Paralympic broadcast and cross-cutting research activity).

Stigma against disabled people is one of the barriers to the adoption, development and delivery of better AT in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). Stigma around disability leads to exclusion and poor standards of living for disabled people, and as a consequence, creates a barrier to better AT adoption.
