Access Israel was established in 1999 by Yuval Wagner in order to transform Israel in to an accessible and inclusive society. Yuval was a helicopter fighter pilot in the Israeli army before he became wheelchair bound due to a helicopter accident during his service. In addition to his new found situation, Yuval felt like a prisoner in his own home due to the lack of accessibility in Israel at the time. However, Yuval did not accept the situation as it was and established Access Israel in order to create a more accessible and inclusive society. One of the organization’s flag events to promote this cause is the ‘Access Israel Annual International Conference’.
