From health decision makers to donors, technical advisors to project managers, these factsheets are aimed at
improving the awareness and understanding of the role that rehabilitation plays, or can play, in global health, its
current trends and its likely trends in the future.

  • They have been designed to provide a broad overview of the role of rehabilitation in global health.
  • They are focusing on the areas of expertise gained by Handicap International in the implementation of
    rehabilitation programs in many of the world’s poorest, disaster and conflict affected countries.

These factsheets can be used as a package or on a stand-alone basis. Each factsheet is divided in different sections,
including: definition of the health condition or cross-cutting issue, key facts, main stakeholders, link to impairments
or disability, role of rehabilitation, supporting guidelines or global policy frameworks and a case study
