To improve access to assistive technology, also known as AT, by contributing to ATscale, the global partnership for assistive technology. This funding and funding from other donors will be used to catalyse access to AT for 500 million people by 2030, through ATscale's two strategic objectives as follows. 1. Develop an Enabling Environment for increased access to high-quality, affordable AT by growing political will, advocating for and informing policy reform, mobilising investment, and strengthening systems and service delivery at global, regional, and country levels. 2. Identify interventions required to Shape Markets and overcome supply and demand-side barriers for priority AT. ATscale already works at global level and is choosing countries for in-depth support. The priority products for ATscale are wheelchairs, glasses, hearing aids, prosthetics and orthotics, and digital devices. This delivers on a commitment at the Global Disability Summit in July 2018.
