Key Rehabilitation Interventions

Home Community Based Rehabilitation


The emergence of the concept of CBR is based on”If you give a man a fish, he will eat for a day. If you teach him to fish, he will eat for a lifetime.”

Community-based rehabilitation (CBR) focuses on enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities and their families; meeting basic needs; and ensuring inclusion and participation. It is a multi-sector strategy that empowers persons with disabilities to access and benefit from education, employment, health and social services.

The process of CBR has its roots in the community and it derives subsistence from the community


The need for CBR is not only to maximise physical and mental ability but also to ensure access to regular services and opportunities, to assist people with disabilities to actively contribute to their own communities, and to encourage community members to promote and respect human rights. The primary need for CBR is improvement of quality of life. It includes integrating and including in the main domain to provide non-discriminative environment for growth and development of people with disabilities.
