Abstract: Accessibility audit is an integral component of ensuring rights of the persons with disabilities. WaterAid Bangladesh along with a Disabled Persons’ Organization, Bangladesh Society for the Change and Advocacy Nexus (BSCAN) conducted accessibility audit in twenty important buildings of the two major cities of Bangladesh. The main objective of the study was to assess the buildings by persons with different kinds of disabilities and share the findings with the authorities and with media so that they realize the importance of accessibility audit before designing and building any infrastructure considering the rights of the persons with disabilities and also to make sure these facilities have universal accessibility.
