Handicap International has produced a new set of factsheets on the added value of rehabilitation, in collaboration with the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics, the World Confederation for Physical Therapy, and the World Federation of Occupational Therapy.

The seven factsheets provide a broad overview of the role of rehabilitation in global health, focusing on areas of expertise gained by Handicap International through running rehabilitation programmes in countries affected by poverty, conflict and disaster. They also look at current and future trends.

The factsheets can be used as a package or individually. Each factsheet is divided in different sections, including: definition of the health condition or issue, key facts, main stakeholders, link to impairments or disability, the role of rehabilitation, supporting guidelines, global policy frameworks and a case study.
