  • WHO Basic Rehabilitation Package for supporting the integration of rehabilitation services within primary health care (PHC) and low-resource settings. The package will outline basic interventions for rehabilitation that can be safely and effectively delivered by the existing workforce within these settings (including general practitioners, nurses and community health workers) through a task-sharing approach, as well as the resources required to deliver them. The package will support Ministries of Health in planning, budgeting and integrating basic rehabilitation at PHC level. The package will also inform the development of clinical protocols and training materials for the existing PHC workforce. Prof Jose M Valderas is a member of the Working Group.
