GSMA Assistive Tech Programme
Our mission is to drive greater access and use of mobile technologies for persons with disabilities in emerging markets and maximise opportunities for social and economic inclusion.
Today, over one billion people need at least one form of assistive technology (AT), but around 90 per cent of them do not have adequate access to the AT they require. This number is expected to double by 2050. The lack of access to AT limits the capacity for people to live healthy, productive, independent and dignified lives; and to access healthcare, education, the labour market and civic life.
