World Health Organization (WHO) published the Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) Guidelines in 2010. WHO and other CBR practitioners are promoting the Guidelines across the world, particularly in the developing nations. They are also talking to the Governments to adopt CBR as the strategy to realize the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

In the light of the first ever World Congress on CBR that was held in Agra this year, DPI undertook a study amongst its Member National Assemblies (MNAs) to formulate a position on the CBR guidelines in a consultative manner. The findings of these studies were unveiled at the World Congress.
