This study on how persons with disabilities experience community-basedrehabilitation (CBR) has been undertaken through the collaboration between theSwedish Organizations of Disabled Persons International Aid Association(SHIA) and the World Health Organization (WHO).SHIA is a partner to the Disability and Rehabilitation Programme at WHO(WHO/DAR), and as such is very supportive of DAR activities in general, and thepresent study in particular.Although there have been many previous evaluations of CBR carried out to a veryhigh quality, this study is the first of its kind that is based on the experiencesof the users of CBR themselves. In this respect it is unique and thus adds valueto the other studies and evaluations of CBR.The draft report was sent by WHO/DAR for comments to a selected number ofprofessionals as well as WHO regional offices who expressed their appreciation.Based on these comments the text was revised by the authors. We wish toexpress our gratitude to Mrs Solveig Hargö Granér, who did the fieldwork thatinvolved all interviews and compilation of data. Also, our thanks go to Mrs and MrAnnika and Lennart Nilsson who analysed the material and wrote the report.They have been exceedingly dedicated and committed in their efforts tocomplete this undertaking.We hope that the report will be used as a source of inspiration and assistance toany CBR programme. It is through the participation and involvement of disabledpersons in CBR programmes that their quality of life can be improved.This report could also be used as an important background document for theInternational Consultation on Reviewing CBR in 2003.Dr E.
