Scoping research report on assistive technology
Through primary and secondary research, we explore the current landscape, the limitations, and current initiatives, ultimately answering the question: “How best should a target intervention around AT sphere affect positive change for poor, disabled and older people in Global South priority countries?”. To understand this question, the research team asked two specific questions:
1) What are the barriers which prevent access to AT for the people that need it, with a focus on those living in low resource settings within DFID priority Global South countries?
2) How should DFID, in partnership with others best direct its intervention toward overcoming these barriers?
