The African Network on Disability (AfriNEAD)



The African Network on Disability (AfriNEAD) has its 6th conference on the 1st and 2nd of December 2020. AfriNEAD is a project of the Centre for Disability and Rehabilitation Studies at Stellenbosch University, South Africa.

The conference will be virtual.

Conference title: "Disability Unplugged - Beyond Conventions and Charters, what really matters to People with Disabilities in Africa".

During the conference a 2-hour workshop on Assistive technology is planned.

The aim of the workshop is to bring African stakeholders in assistive technology together so that we can discuss ways and opportunities for sharing information, knowledge and skills. We want to explore whether there is an interest in and need for collaboration. Then we want to generate ideas on practical strategies, such as ACAT, that can be used to enhance sharing of information and collaboration.
