March 25, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - March 25, 2021 @ 3:30 pm

WHO-IDDC webinar “Is Telehealth accessible for people with disability?”

The current COVID-19 pandemic has revealed that many people with disability experience difficulties accessing and using telehealth services.

To address this, WHO and ITU have initiated the development of a global standard for accessibility of telehealth services.

Join WHO and the International Disability and Development Consortium for a seminar where we will:

  • Discuss the use and potential of telehealth for people with disability
  • Identify challenges that people with disability face when accessing telehealth services
  • Outline concrete solutions that healthcare providers and manufacturers of telehealth platforms need to ensure when delivering telehealth services

*Captioning will be provided for this seminar. Please, let us know if you need any other reasonable accommodation to take part in the seminar.
