The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) Regional Office for Africa in partnership with the East Africa Community (EAC) has developed a Draft Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Accessibility Policy for the East Africa Community Countries.
The policy was adopted at a workshop held in Nairobi, Kenya from 6-7 October 2016, where 40 participants from five EAC countries also recommended the use of Universal Services and Access Funds as a source of funding.
The meeting also recommended the development of a five-year monitoring and evaluation mechanism. For more information, visit https://goo.gl/yBZCbO
