Please make reference to the WHO website for any detailed information.


In the development of WHO-UNICEF Global Report on Assistive Technology (GReAT), WHO launched an initiative in early 2020 to support the Member States in measuring access to assistive technology (AT) through national representative household surveys. In response to the request of the international AT community, WHO extends this initiative and calls for engagement from all AT stakeholders in this global data collection campaign to contribute to the GReAT and make an impact in improving access to AT.

This call invites proposals to conduct data collection on access to AT using the WHO rapid Assistive Technology Assessment (rATA) questionnaire. rATA is an interviewer-administered questionnaire, either used stand-alone or incorporated into other surveys. The rATA questionnaire is available in Arabic, ChineseEnglish, French, SpanishPortuguese and Russian.

WHO aims to select the best proposals from research institutes, national or international development agencies, NGOs, AT user groups and other civil society organizations. The successful proposals will be funded for data collection implementation and presentation in the global consultation of GReAT in 2021 (dates to be confirmed).

Please read the call document for details on the requirements and submission procedure.
