The Global Partnership for Education estimates that in low and lower-middle income countries, 90% of children with disabilities do not go to school (Right to Education Initiative,2018). This project set to improve the accessibility for people with disabilities in the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy of Rabat (FMP-Rabat) in collaboration with our sponsor Dr. Azeddine Ibrahimi. We conducted building assessments using ADA Standards, interviews with professionals, and focus groups to identify and prioritize needs that would improve handicap accessibility. We found that the infrastructure and lack of sensibilization at the school made it difficult for students with disabilities to attend. We recommended improvements in areas such as navigation, space accessibility, and services.
