Advocacy

ISWP's Advocacy Working Group is tasked with increasing awareness about the lack of access to wheelchairs worldwide, increasing funding to support this issue, and encouraging policy adoption to facilitate wheelchair provision worldwide, particularly in less-resourced settings.  The group is developing materials and an awareness-raising campaign to create a clear, consistent message across the industry; to promote wheelchair inclusion in national policies and to increase recognition within the United Nations Body, the WHO World Health Assembly, and other high‐level forums.  Two subcommittees support the Working Group:  Awareness and Policy Adoption.
