What Works' to improve access to life-changing Assistive Technology (AT) for all (COSP 16 side event recording )
The Global Disability Innovation Hub, joined the World Health Organization and in partnership with UNICEF, ATscale and The International Disability Alliance for a unique insight into testing and backing new approaches. This side event brought together key stakeholders and experts working across the AT arena, with the aim of enabling researchers, innovators and AT users to experiment with new ideas. As urgency to scale up access grows, could a 'fail fast and scale successes' approach work for AT? The session reflected on learnings from UK aid funded AT2030 programme, led by GDI Hub, to test 'What Works' to improve access to lifechanging AT. This is a story of innovation and learning.
