MSPGH Special Seminar: 19th November 2018 – Rehabilitation: the health strategy for the 21st century – Really?

12.30-1.30pm, Mon 19th November 2018
Seminar Room 515, Level 5, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton

Dr Alarcos Cieza, Coordinator, Disability and Rehabilitation, World Health Organization

Health, social and economic trends should serve as a call to policy-makers to invest not only in health services that reduce mortality and morbidity, but also in those that improve functioning and well-being. These outcomes are at the core of rehabilitation, so why are rehabilitation services often underdeveloped, under-resourced and undervalued?

This presentation will explore the importance of rehabilitation in universal health coverage.  It will introduce current commitments and actions, and what still needs to be done.
