Disabilities and rehabilitation

WHO hosts the third meeting of the editorial committee on a world report on disability and rehabilitation

On 5-8 November, WHO held the third meeting of the Editorial Committee for a "World report on disability and rehabilitation" at WHO Headquarters in Geneva. The world report is being developed at the request of the WHA Resolution 58.23 (May 2005). The Editorial Committee reviewed the first draft of the report. Headquarters staff in WHO and the World Bank, with whom the report is being jointly produced, provided additional technical guidance. A second draft will be produced by the first quarter in 2008 for review in regional consultations from April 2008. The global and national launches are planned for 2009.
