The ATA-C portal is for anyone who is involved in planning or implementing the ATA-C tool in collaboration with the Ministry of Health (and/or related ministries) of the implementing country.

The ATA-C is a system-level tool that can enable countries to better understand the current status of AT and identify key actions to improve access to assistive technology. It can be used for:
*Awareness raising *Policy and programme design *Ongoing monitoring and evaluation (M&E)

The ATA-C is intended to be implemented by an experienced team, in collaboration with relevant ministries and users’ organizations.

If you are interested in broader assistive technology topics, join the bigger GATE assistive technology community to connect with people from all over the world who are working to improve access to assistive technology. To join the GATE community visit the GATE community homepage.

If you are planning to implement the ATA-C in your country, or are already using the tool in collaboration with the Ministry of Health (and/or related ministries), you can access the full ATA-C instruction manual, data consolidation spreadsheet and supplementary documents in the ATA-C portal. In the portal you can also pose questions and contribute to discussions related to ATA-C implementation.

To access the portal, please request to join the community by clicking the link in the box on the right. You will be asked to provide your name, email address and some information about the assessment that you are planning. To facilitate your application, please provide as much information as possible on your plan to implement ATA-C in your country.

The ATA-C is part of the WHO Assistive Technology Assessment (ATA) Toolkit. For more information on the toolkit, visit the ATA Toolkit webpage.

The ATA-C was developed by WHO and its partners through field testing in Bahrain, Bolivia (Plurinational State of), Ethiopia, Indonesia, Iraq, Liberia, Malawi, Mongolia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Tajikistan, Uganda and Viet Nam. The latest version of the ATA-C tool has been developed based on the feedback and lessons learned collected during field testing. It is a living document and will continue to be refined as it is implemented in more countries.

The development of ATA-C was funded by UK aid under the AT2030 programme led by GDI Hub, and the United States Agency for International Development. Full acknowledgments can be found in the ATA-C implementing manual in the Library.
