<p class=”x_MsoNormal”>Absolutely agree with all the points raised here, and would add that issues around AT are even more challenging in humanitarian contexts, where need may be even greater, but as yet there is still little research or evidence about best practice in these contexts. Join us next week at the HPNW 2022 (https://www.unocha.org/humanitarian-networks-and-partnerships-weeks-hnpw) for our session on ‘Health Systems Strengthening: Integration of Assistive Technology as A Critical Component’, where we will be discussing these issues with colleagues from the Global Disability Innovation Hub, CBM-Global Disability Inclusion, HelpAge International, UNICEF, Yakkum Emergency Unit (Indonesia) and the European Disability Forum.
