Persons with disabilities not equally represented online

According to UN statistics, there are currently over 80 million persons with disabilities living in Africa. In Ghana persons with disabilities are estimated to be 3% of the total population. In 2018, internet penetration in Ghana was estimated to be 30.8%; in 2021 it is reported to have increased to 50% penetration. The global pandemic that introduced restrictions to physical gatherings including workplaces, educational institutions, shopping opportunities, etc. all moved toward the digital space, accelerating this transition.
However for the persons with disabilities in Ghana, things either remained the same or grew worse due to lack of digital access, digital literacy, financial empowerment, and other related challenges.
