Improving the living conditions of the most needy collectives, particularly persons with disability and seniors, by means of the new Information and Communication Technologies, constitutes the principal goal of Fundación Telefónica in the field of telemedicine, teleassistance and disability.
The activity of the Telefónica Group, and specifically of Fundación Telefónica, in this regard is based on carrying out significant R&D mainly aimed to increasing the accessibility of these groups to information, communication, training and employment, making possible improved health care and assistance to seniors, ill persons, persons with disabilities or those without protection, and helping to provide education for health and prevention of several diseases and disabilities.
Among the projects carried out or supported by Fundación Telefónica in the area of disability, in all cases with the collaboration of firmly established and prestigious institutions, are the following: Merc@dis, a specific job seeking portal for persons with disability; the demonstration unit for equipment adapted to persons with disability of the CEAPAT; or project SICLA, which provides advanced technology for alternative communication.
In addition, Fundación Telefónica has again collaborated with various social organisations, providing the technical means needed to carry out initiatives meant to increase public awareness and participation.
