ASPR Resource Spotlight: Access and Functional Needs Web-Based Training
About half of the people in the U.S. have access and/or functional needs - and they are at heightened risk during emergencies. ASPR has developed a web-based training course that is targeted to public health officials, emergency managers, and social/human service providers. They need to be aware of and comply with legal requirements designed to protect individuals with Access and Functional Needs (AFN) from discrimination. The training highlights information from federal guidance, laws and executive orders that require non-discrimination for addressing AFN—both specific and nonspecific to a disaster context. It will help to ensure individuals and organizations can better meet the needs of AFN during emergencies.
