ACADEMY PARTNERS WITH ISPO
ON KEY GLOBAL INITIATIVES

Working together to ensure worldwide access to
quality mobility devices and services.

The American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists (the Academy) is pleased to announce its partnership with
ISPO to support the mission of worldwide access to appropriate mobility devices and services worldwide.

 

ISPO launched its Global Partnership Exchange to provide a forum for strategic dialogue regarding common challenges in the professions of rehabilitation and assistive technology with an emphasis on mobility devices such as prostheses and orthoses. The Academy is honored to partner with ISPO and support the subsequent international efforts.

  • The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
  • The WHO Global Disability Action Plan 2014-2021
  • The WHO Rehabilitation 2030: Call for Action towards strengthening rehabilitation in the health system
  • The WHO Global Cooperation on Assistive Technology (GATE) Initiative
  • Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) pledge, "No one should be left behind."

Academy Executive Director, Chellie Hollis Blondes, CAE, is proud that the Academy was asked to join the Global Partnership Exchange. "The Academy fully supports all efforts that focus on improving the quality of life for people with disabilities. Collaborating with ISPO will help take a global step forward in ensuring quality care is provided to all."
