NCPEDP-Mphasis Universal Design Awards, have been awarding individuals and corporations who are enabling persons with disabilities

Since 2010, the NCPEDP-Mphasis Universal Design Awards, have been awarding individuals and corporations who are enabling persons with disabilities to live more independently.

The winners of this apex national award, over the past decade, include several healthcare innovators. A case in point is Dr Virant Sirohi (winner in 2020), who has contributed to improving sanitation and health facilities for PwD in Haridwar. To promote universal accessibility, he also trained field workers and ANMs/ASHA to tackle attitudinal barriers.

Arman Ali, Executive Director of NCPEDP says, “We believe that a person with a disability should get the same information and services as a person without a disability. These awards recognize those who are working towards making this happen. In a country like India, there are many more innovators working actively to build health services for persons with disabilities. We encourage them to apply for the NCPEDP-Mphasis Universal Design Awards.”

Applications are invited across subjects like accessibility in built environment, transport, ICT, aids and appliances, advocacy, and public policy and services across four categories

  1. Person with Disabilities
  2. Working professionals
  3. Organizations/Companies
  4. NCPEDP-Mphasis Javed Abidi Public Policy Award

The last date of application is August 21, 2021 and awards will be presented on Sep 28, 2021.
