On 22 and 23 August 2019, the GATE team will be hosting the GReAT Consultation 2019 in Geneva. This meeting will bring academics, practitioners, policy makers, and assistive technology users together to guide the content development of the Global Report on effective access to Assistive Technology. The Global Report was requested by the 71st World Health Assembly within the resolution Improving Access to Assistive Technology.

WHO is now calling for contributions from across the globe to be presented and discussed during the 2-day consultation, to ensure that the Global Report will cover a range of different approaches to improving access to assistive technology across all cultural contexts. As an attendant of the GREAT Summit in 2017, we would greatly appreciate your contribution towards the development of the Global Report by sharing any work you have been or are working on related to improving access to assistive technology.
