Welcome to the accessibility area of the Health Action Partnership International website.

HAPI aims to have a website which is inclusive and accessible to all our website visitors. Our accessibility strategy has a broad reach, and considers the needs of people:  

  • with visual, hearing or motor impairments
  • whose first language is not English


Our aims

The accessibility guidelines we follow include:    

  • allowing users to control text sizes
  • using an easy-to-read font type
  • ensuring suitable foreground and background colour contrast
  • using clear and simple language 
  • providing text equivalents for pictures
  • providing simple, consistent site navigation
  • ensuring the target of each link is clearly defined
  • providing a sitemap
  • providing navigational shortcuts for users of text-only browsers and page readers
  • using appropriate structural mark-up to maximise browser support

Accessibility - text size

If you prefer the text size to be larger or smaller, you can easily change this either by using the AAA functions on the top right of the web page or by using your browser.  See below:   

Internet Explorer

  • Select View in the menu bar. 
  • Select Text Size from options list. 
  • Choose the required size Small, Medium, Large or Largest.

Mozilla Firefox 1.5, 2.0

  • Open the browser
  • Hold down the Ctrl button on keyboard and press the + (plus) key. This will enlarge text.
  • To enlarge again repeat the procedure.
  • Repeat until the text is set to the size you want.
  • To make the text smaller, press the Ctrl button on keyboard and press the - (minus) key.



  • Select View in the menu bar. 
  • Select Increase Font. 
  • To increase the type further, continue selecting Increase Font. 



Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target.
