CBR Guidelines as a Tool for Community Based Inclusive Development (IDDC)

Over the last three decades, there has been considerable change in the understanding and practice of Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR), with the recognition that persons with disabilities have the same rights, and need access to the same services and opportunities, as others in their communities. CBR today is understood as a strategy to ensure inclusion, rights and equal opportunities for persons with disabilities. CBR practice has changed from a medical orientated, often single sector (e.g. health or education), service delivery approach, to a comprehensive, multi-sectoral, rights-based one.
