Only 5%–15% of the population in low and middle-income countries, who are in need of elderly and disabled assistive devices, have access to them, as per stats released by the World Health Organization (WHO). Therefore, WHO along with its collaborating centers is working towards improving accessibility of elderly and disabled assistive devices to better cater to the patient population. Few of this initiatives include:

  • Organizing regional and country workshops, meetings, and seminars
  • Creating a database on availability of appropriate assistive devices and technologies
  • Developing normative guidelines
  • Providing assistance for development of national policies and programs on assistive devices and technologies with a focus on human resource development

Furthermore, on the basis of discussion in the 66th World Health Assembly, held in 2013, WHO prepared a comprehensive global disability action plan for 2014 – 2021. Under this plan, WHO intends to improve access to health services and programs, extend rehabilitation, habilitation, assistive technology, assistance and support services, and support research on disability and related services. Such global initiatives are indirectly promoting adoption of assistive devices and are encouraging manufacturers to develop innovative elderly and disabled assistive devices.
