Rehabilitation Project

Project Title: Rehabilitation Project

Brief Introduction of Project: National Federation of the Disabled Nepal, in partnership with HI, is implementing ‘Rehabilitation’ project for the period October 2019 to September 2022 with the objective of increasing access to rehabilitation services for persons with disabilities across all impairment types in seven provinces of Nepal. Recognizing that there is no systematic detection and referral of people needing rehabilitation as well as no institutional referral linkages between government, PTU and Physical Rehabilitation Centre, there is need for establishment of a sustainable integrated rehabilitation for person with disability in Nepal. This project will establish a sustainable, integrated, public-private partnership (PPP) system for the rehabilitation of person with disabilities in order to improve the mobility and functional independence of rehabilitation services.
