(Bar-Ilan University) A newly-published global survey of national health authority websites in nearly 200 countries has directly quantified COVID-19 information accessibility. Only a few of the countries examined fully adhered to internationally recognized accessibility guidelines. Websites from the majority of countries surveyed continue to contain accessibility errors that present significant barriers to people with disabilities. As a result, not everyone has equal access to government health websites and, therefore, vital information to stop the spread of COVID-19.
