June 2009

Expand view

"The number of people with disability worldwide, and particularly in the developing countries, is increasing due to wars, conflicts, vehicular accidents, chronic diseases, mental impairment, birth defects and malnutrition. Many of these people face participation-restriction in activities of life. This paper appraises the emergence and the global view of community-based rehabilitation (CBR). The review and remodelling of CBR in developing countries and its inclusion in community development will enhance the reintegration of the disabled individuals into the society"

"This article seeks to explore CBR through different perspectives. Based on existing literature and research on CBR, the paradoxes between CBR as ideal and CBR in usual practice, are identified...This paper looks at limitations of the past perspectives on CBR, and also points out the need for 'consciousness' studies on CBR. To understand the discrepancies of CBR, people need to look "beyond" CBR as it is commonly understood"
