The Digital and Assistive Technologies for Ageing (DATA) community is a forum for exchanging information, discussion, and fostering partnerships around digital and emerging assistive technologies. We welcome participation from interested users' group as well as experts from technology (digital/engineering) and the health sectors, active and interested in developing and implementing evidence-based digital assistive technologies to address the need. The WHO DATA initiative seeks to build on the digital transformation of health and social services and to foster innovation. It aims to encourage development, synthesis and the use of affordable, quality-based digital and assistive technologies specially for people with impairments or decline in physical or mental capacity. If you are interested in broader assistive technology topics, please join the bigger GATE community to connect with people from all over the world who are working to improve access to assistive technology.
