BLANCHET, Karl
BOGGS, Dorothy
December 2012

"This guide describes the Sustainability Analysis Process (SAP), a coordinated planning approach that aims to facilitate the development of a common vision of sustainability among various actors in a system. Specifically, it is a participatory process which outlines how to achieve consensus on a common vision, and how to define sustainability indicators that can be used to monitor progress towards this vision within the context of the national rehabilitation system. Ultimately, the SAP outlined in this guide is a practical tool that can help all actors in a system to understand the various components of sustainability and analyse the concept of sustainability in relation to their own system"

Measuring health and disability

MONT, Daniel
May 2007

Expand view

This article examines the use of Disability-adjusted life years (DALYs), an indicator for assessing the relative effects of public health interventions, by comparing the underlying concepts to WHO’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF). It concludes by stating "the main difficulty with DALYs is that they do not value interventions that enhance the lives of people with disabilities. To do so, they must draw on the social model of disability to look at how the environment interacts with functional status"

Indicators for CBR programmes

DEEPAK, Sunil

Expand view

This paper explores how to improve the use of indicators to more effectively compare CBR programmes at national and international levels. It is noted that there is a wide variation in the indicators used by CBR programmes in different countries and even amongst different projects in the same country which makes it difficult to compare the effectiveness of programmes. The paper presents the indicator results of participants' discussions when divided into two groups to analyse the possible indicators for CBR programmes - one group focused upon the major participants of CBR programmes and the second group focused upon different sectors involved in CBR programmes.  It recommends that the indicators identified need to be field tested to gauge their effectiveness. This paper would be useful for anyone involved in the preparation, delivery or evaluation of CBR programmes
