Community-based rehabilitation guidelines
Recommendations to develop guidelines on community-based rehabilitation (CBR) were made during the International Consultation to Review Community-based Rehabilitation which was held in Helsinki, Finland in 2003.
The Community-based rehabilitation guidelines:
-Provide guidance on how to develop and strengthen CBR programmes;
-Promote CBR as a strategy for community-based development involving people with disabilities;
-Support stakeholders to meet the basic needs and enhance the quality of life of people with disabilities and their families;
-Encourage the empowerment of people with disabilities and their families.
