Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Research has shown that people with disabilities experience poorer access to healthcare. This study aims to explore the perceived barriers to accessing primary healthcare services for adults with disabilities in low- and middle-income countries. By identifying and targeting such barriers, OT practitioners can both contribute and lead the way to improving access to quality healthcare for not only people with disabilities, but also other vulnerable populations globally.
