Learning, Acting and Building for Rehabilitation in Health Systems - ReLAB-HS
The Learning, Acting and Building for Rehabilitation in Health Systems (ReLAB-HS) is an opportunity to provide access to high-quality sustainable services that are responsive to the growing need for physical rehabilitation.
ReLAB-HS is a comprehensive five-year program that will respond to the escalating need for physical rehabilitation services in low- and middle-income countries.
We will work across all levels of the health system, building technical, policy and research capacity; increasing political commitment; and inspiring leadership. ReLAB-HS will use new technology and support simple, low-cost service delivery models that expand access to rehabilitation in the home and community – where it is needed most.
The program will focus on building local and international leadership, crafting and implementing local, demand-driven approaches and innovations, and working largely in communities and home settings, implementing real and relevant rehabilitation and policy solutions
This project is expected to run until 2025.
