In 2023, ITU celebrates the 10th Anniversary of Accessible Americas, which is the ITU main regional platform focused on ICT Accessibility to ensure the digital inclusion and the empowerment of all people, regardless of age, gender, ability or location.

Accessible Americas aims to strengthen the knowledge of the ITU members on policy and strategies of digital inclusion and the exchange of good practices to ensure accessibility of telecommunication and ICT products and services for persons with disabilities, girls, women, indigenous people, older persons, youth and children, in order to ensure that all will benefit from ICT opportunities. At the same time, Accessible Americas provides an opportunity for participants to share experiences and knowledge about ICT accessibility projects and initiatives from the Americas region to benefit different parties.

Accessible Americas will be conducted in English and Spanish and will count on local sign language interpretation. The event will also provide a training opportunity in ICT Accessibility.
