The Disability and Rehabilitation team has announced a call for research
proposals to support the development of the World Health Organization
Guidelines on health-related rehabilitation.
The guidelines will support the implementation of the rehabilitation aspects of
the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN 2006). They will
provide guidance to governments and other relevant actors on how to develop,
expand and improve the quality of rehabilitation services in less resourced
settings in line with the recommendations in the World report on disability
(WHO/World Bank 2011), notably the integration and decentralization of
rehabilitation services within the health system. View details.
