Assistive products are generally considered a means to participate in community life & in wider society on an equal footing with others. Without them, people suffer exclusion, are at risk of isolation, live in poverty, may face hunger, and be forced to depend more on others.
Assistive technology is a life changer – it opens the door to education for children with impairments, employment & social interaction for adults living with disabilities, and an independent life of dignity for older persons
Affordability is a major barrier to access. Around two thirds of people with assistive products reported out-of-pocket payments for them. Others reported relying on family and friends to financially support their needs…
The report notes that the number of people in need of one or more assistive products is likely to rise to 3.5 billion by 2050, due to populations ageing and the prevalence of noncommunicable diseases rising across the world…
Almost one billion children & adults with disabilities and older persons in need of assistive technology are denied access, particularly in low- & middle-income countries, where access can be as low as 3% of the need for these life-changing products
More than 2.5 billion people - or 1 in 3 people - need one or more assistive products, such as wheelchairs, hearing aids, or apps that support communication and cognition: New WHO & @UNICEF report

Last week I visited a hospital in Makariv, #Ukraine, that is severely damaged & out of function, and a #primaryhealthcare facility that is completely destroyed. This tragic outcome is denying people of health services. Health care is #NotATarget. We ask Russia to end this war.

Millions of people don't live in peace. Millions don't have access to food and health care. Millions are dying due to a war. On International Day of Living Together in Peace, we call on all world leaders to work together to end wars and secure peace for everyone, everywhere.
