Case Studies and Reports


Between March and June 2018, the Global Disability Innovation Hub (GDI) led a consortium tasked by the UK Department for International Development (DfID) with comprehensively scoping the barriers to Assistive Technology (AT) access in order to inform the design of a significant new global programme. This paper summarises the evidence examined in that Scoping Report; presents the methodology it proposed; and shares the early findings for the subsequent £20m funded programme, called ‘AT2030 – Access to Assistive Technology for All’.
