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.
