Medical Advocacy Project (MAP) for Health Access offers research, education, training, technical assistance, and technical resources. This comprehensive training curriculum includes high-motivation learning tools and downloadable PDFs that help women with disabilities learn about their right to accessible, quality health care as required by federal law. They can get training in self-advocacy skills to enable them to become educators and resource people to their own health providers and local health care organizations about these rights and the resources required to enable them.
This program addresses the substantial health disparities for women with disabilities which results from medical providers’ lack of knowledge about their responsibility to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (via ADA required access and accommodation for people with disabilities in out-patient clinics.) MAP empowers disabled women and improves care for their unique health care needs.
