Launch of WHO Global Survey to identify the 50 Most Priority Assistive Products

Based on the success and learning of Essential Medicines List (EML), WHO’s new global initiative – the Global Cooperation on Assistive Technology (GATE) is developing a Priority Assistive Products List (APL) to improve access to high-quality affordable assistive products. For developing the priority list, especially to hear from the service users and providers, WHO is launching a global survey to identify the 50 Most Priority Assistive Products.

The web and paper-based survey will be available for three months from 3 December 2015 – International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The global survey is available in the 50 most widely spoken languages in the world, including six UN languages – just click here.
