Millions of children with disabilities in low-resource settings are deprived of their basic right to play because they lack access to the necessary assistive technology. Early screening for disability and the provision of play therapy and assistive products (or ‘aids’) such as wheelchairs, hearing, and vision aids, are essential for these children early in life to promote their development and independence.
Charities offer donations, but this is not sustainable. It also excludes up to 95% of children who need assistive products. Since 2018, Clinton Health Access Initiative has supported eight governments to launch first-ever policies to galvanize radical change by integrating disability screening and provision of assistive technology into health facilities and at schools.
Now is the time to translate policies into tangible results, screening over ten million children for disability and providing aids and play therapy to 250,000 children who need it. This project will fundamentally transform health and education systems, so generations of disabled children can play and thrive.
