AT2030 - Cluster 1: Data and Evidence
Led by GDI Hub, this cluster centres around promoting research, coordinating the AT2030 and Africa 2020 programme integration, strengthening systems and supporting GATE (WHO) to coordinate the Global Report on effective access to Assistive Technology. Led by GDI Hub at UCL with the support of the IIPP, ALL Institute and Leonard Cheshire Disability. Framing the economics of AT around a mission-led approach; developing a return on investment framework and researching what works to overcome stigma. As well the development of tools to estimate the overall population-based need for AT and a Humanitarian Research Strand. LSHTM is developing a mobile tool that can be used to estimate the overall population-based need for AT, including services and products. UCL are also developing a data repository aimed at AT market-shapers. This repository will represent collated findings of about 200 population-based studies that measure outcomes like AT need, coverage, use, un- or under-met need. Maynooth University will undertake research within Kenya and other African countries to support health system innovation to increase access to assistive technology. The Overcoming Stigma towards Assistive Technology project (OSAT) aims to conduct and evaluate a stigma and discrimination reduction intervention with the goal of engendering user uptake of AT. UCL will also complete a scoping study to examine the need for AT in humanitarian settings, as well as current responses to that need (perceived and actual). This will complement the study being undertaken by UNICEF on barriers to access, and organisational responses in the humanitarian setting. WHO will work across both studies and the final results will be bought together in a chapter for the World Report on Assistive Technology.
