Accessibility Design Guide: Universal design principles for Australia’s aid program provides
guidance on enabling people with disability to participate equally in social and economic life
through the design and implementation of development initiatives. This guide is a rich resource of ideas which development practitioners can consider when applying universal design. The aim is to support Australia’s aid program so it minimizes barriers and becomes more accessible to people with disability and other groups, including the elderly, pregnant women, children and people with a temporary illness or injury
