Community-based rehabilitation (CBR) global database

Share

Community-based rehabilitation (CBR) is being practiced in more than 90 countries of the world, but there is no central database of CBR implementers and activities. Considering this, WHO has taken the initiative to create a global database. CBR implementers and practitioners are encouraged to assist WHO to develop this global database by completing this Web-based data collection form. It should be noted that data submitted to the global database will be openly available on the Disability and Rehabilitation web site.

The CBR global database will facilitate greater exchange of knowledge and information among the CBR community. It will assist to collect information on where CBR is being practiced and eventually allow for identification of a global coverage rate. This in turn will assist to identify gaps and develop future plans of action. WHO will use this global database to update enlisted members on the Organization's activities related to disability and rehabilitation with a specific focus on CBR. All submissions to the global database are the views of the respective organizations or individuals providing the information and are not verified by WHO.
