Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

Community-Based Rehabilitation (CBR) was developed by the World Health Organization to fill the gap between increased disability and the lack of rehabilitation services in low- and middle-income countries. Research has shown that countries adopting the CBR model vary considerably in services offered and outcomes for program success. This abstract will reveal results from a systematic review that aimed to gather the evidence from all the published research on CBR programs since the year 2000.
