A review is presented of disability in relation to non-communicable diseases (NCDs)—both in terms of vulnerability of people with disabilities to experiencing NCDs as well as the incorporation of rehabilitation within the NCD response to alleviate disability among those living with NCDs. Discussions are illustrated with examples from stroke and dementia. Improving rehabilitation for people with NCD-related disabilities and improving access to healthcare services for people with disabilities are discussed.
