Situational Analysis of Manual Wheelchair Provision: Nepal

Background

The Enabling Friday Community (EFC) Nepal has proposed a vision for change based on 4 working sessions over the past few months - Enabling Fridays Vision.

While we want to focus on building sustainable assistive technology innovation and systems, we as a group recognised the obvious need for specific data to inform the work. Collaboratively we have agreed that a situational analysis and action plan for sustainable manual wheelchair provision should be prioritised to develop a working methodology and service system template.

An initial concept note for the work can be found at the below link on which official consultation is being sought within Nepal before proceeding.
