Access to telecommunication/ICT services by persons with disabilities and other persons with specific needs (2021)

ITU Access to ICT for PwD

Achieving the global commitment “that no one will be left behind”, as set out by the UN Sustainable Development Goals, will be possible only if ICTs are available, accessible and affordable to all and, in particular, to the disadvantaged groups of society – persons with disabilities, persons with specific needs, including indigenous peoples and people living in rural areas, women and girls, youth and children, as well as older persons. This report provides an overview of good practices and achievements in ICT accessibility worldwide and explores areas for improvement towards achieving full digital inclusion.
