Community-Based Rehabilitation and Disability-Inclusive Development: On a Winding Path to an Uncertain Destination
The majority of people with disabilities who live in developing countries, predominantly in the global South, do not receive any formal disability or rehabilitation services. In those countries or regions where at least some disability services are provided, the community-based rehabilitation (CBR) approach, or some form of it, is likely to be the only approach available (Evans et al. 2001).
