Resumen

There is no doubt that population growth and the increase in non-communicable diseases represent a challenge to society, especially for the health system, including palliative care. Maintaining accessible sites is essential for all kinds of people to interact on the web. Ecuador does not have websites on palliative care, and the existing ones in the area of health are not all accessible. To solve this need, we propose the design of a website in the area of palliative care, applying standards based on Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. By designing a website that applies the WCAG 2.1 standards, more people will be able to access healthcare, including people with disabilities. This research can contribute as a reference for the construction of more inclusive websites in the area of health.
