There are estimated to be over one billion people with disabilities globally and 80% of them live in low- and middle-income countries. They are often excluded from education, health, and employment and other aspects of society leading to an increased risk of poverty. This report reviews the evidence about the impact of community-based rehabilitation on the lives of people with disabilities and their carers in low- and middle-income countries.
