20120222 Position paper on Mobility devices

Joint position paper on the provision of mobility devices in less resourced settings

Despite the efforts of stakeholders at the international, national, regional and local levels,
the mobility needs of people with disabilities are not being met. This joint position paper
was developed in response to a meeting about personal mobility and mobility devices, held
on 28–29 October 2009 at World Health Organization headquarters, Geneva, Switzerland.
This paper aims to guide and support countries, especially those with limited resources,
in the implementation of relevant articles of the CRPD associated with the provision of
mobility devices.
