ABSTRACT
People with disabilities are often deprived of their rights for quality healthcare during an emergency. The reasons for the deprivations are due to a lack of specialized healthcare that can cater for their health essentials and due to a lack of policies that protect their health rights. However, people with disabilities should be safeguarded since they tend to be the most vulnerable during times of crisis. In this regard, technology can empower people with disabilities through the use of designed mobile healthcare technologies or mhealth apps that are specialized for their health needs which they can use during the global emergency.
