Synopsis: Editorial views on articles and current news stories and topics relating to disability and health issues today.
What is an Editorial?
Most editorial pieces take the form of an essay or thesis, using arguments to promote a specific point of view of the writer. Editorial pages are considered to be a writer's specific opinion on a specific topic - and may or may not be biased.
What is an Op-ed?
An op-ed (originally short for "opposite the editorial page" though sometimes interpreted as "opinion editorial") is a written piece typically published by a newspaper or magazine which expresses the opinion of a named author usually not affiliated with the publication editorial board.

Op-eds are different from both editorials - (opinion pieces submitted by editorial board members) - and letters to the editor - (opinion pieces submitted by readers).
- Politics - World political editorial views on current affairs related to disability and health worldwide.
- Technology - Editorial views on news related to health and disability technology topics in the news.
