This case study investigated two models of community-based rehabilitation for people with disabilities (CBR) in Vietnam. One model is carried out by Charity Association of Quang Tri province in central Vietnam. The other model is conducted by Center “For Tomorrow” in Ha Noi. The study aimed to find lessons for replicating and and developing CBR models across the country. The study was conducted in late 2016 with three tasks: i) Gathering and syntherizing information on formation, development and operation of the two models; ii) Identifying advantages, disadvantages, successes and lessons learned from the two models; iii) Making recommendation for replication of the models.
Recommendations for replication of the two models include integrating vocational training and job promotion into rehabilitation, mobilizing community resources, mobilizing and selecting volunteers, and conducting communication to imprrove knowledge of PWDs and their families, and of communities on CBR, as well as on their roles in implementing CBR.
