Description

This study reviews literature on access to health care for deaf people and reveals significant challenges in communication with health providers and gaps in health knowledge for deaf people. Examples of approaches to improve access to health care, such as providing powerful and visually accessible communication through the use of sign language, the implementation of important communication technologies, and cultural awareness training for health professionals are discussed. Programs that raise health knowledge in Deaf communities and models of primary health care centers for deaf people are also presented.
