Introduction

This section of MAP to Access is designed to help the estimated 25,000 organizations and groups in the U.S. that serve people with disabilities, including centers for independent living, rehabilitation centers, disability rights and services organizations, developmental disabilities centers, networks of group homes, disability support groups, self-advocacy organizations, organizations of parents of disabled children, and disabled student programs. These organizations need to tell individuals with disabilities and their families and friends about MAP and use it to train them to advocate for better health care access.

This section provides detailed information and educational tools to help health care consumers review, monitor, and improve their medical care.
