UNICEF plans to build world database of AT

The United Nations Childrens’ Fund (UNICEF) and the Global Alliance on Accessible Technologies and Environments (GAATES) are planning to develop a global database of assistive products and technologies.

The organisations are seeking information on the products that are most commonly used to reduce barriers for children with disabilities.

To gather this information UNICEF and GAATES are conducting a survey on the most important assistive devices and technologies throughout the world. The results of the survey will be used in the development of an “assistive device/technology supply” database.

Responses to the 15-minute survey are needed soon: the survey will close on February 15.

“Any information that you can contribute through the survey is valuable and very much appreciated,” say UNICEF and GAATES.

“We request your support in completing the short survey that can be found at the following link: http://www.gaates.org/quest/qintro.php.”

Further information about the survey can be gained by emailing info@gaates.org.
