Capturing the difference we make - Community-based Rehabilitation Indicators Manual

International Disability Development Consortium (IDDC) & World Health Organisation (WHO), Eds.: WHO, (2015)

WHO and the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC) have worked together to develop the indicators presented in this manual that capture the difference CBR makes in the lives of people with disability in the communities where it is implemented. This manual presents these (base and supplementary) indicators and provides simple guidance on collecting the data needed to inform them. The indicators have been developed to show the difference between people with disability and their families and those without disability in relation to the information reported in the indicators. This comparability provides valuable information to CBR managers, donors and government agencies alike, which can be used to guide decision making, support advocacy and improve accountability. Further, the ability of the indicators to provide a comparison of the populations of people with disability to Persons without disability aligns with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disability (CRPD), which states that people with disability have equal rights to those without disabilities.
