Access for Disabled Women: Tell Your Doctor about Your Access Needs

The World Institute on Disability (WID) provided this animated video to explain how disabled women and their medical providers can improve their relationships with one another. It includes examples of problems and solutions and helps its viewers understand the stereotypes and misconceptions that lead to many of these problems.

The WID aims to eliminate barriers to full social integration and increase employment, economic security and health care for persons with disabilities. WID creates innovative programs and tools; conducts research, training, public education and advocacy campaigns; and provides technical assistance.
