Consultation on enhancing the minimum standards of services offered at the Physical Rehabilitation Centres (PRCs)

On 26 June 2020, Persons with Disability Foundation (PWDF) organized a consultation workshop on the Minimum Package of Services for Physical Rehabilitation Centres (PRCs) in Cambodia.

The workshop was attended by 40 participants from different institutions including service users, representing Disabled People’s Organisations, Older People’s Associations and Rehabilitation Professional Associations. Rehabilitation plays a crucial role to enable persons with disabilities to fully participate in society. The workshop aimed to define a minimum package of services as a guiding standard of the PRCs.

Mom Sothara, Deputy Director of PWDF said, “On behalf of PWDF, I would like to deeply thank the Australian Government that has always supported Persons with Disability Foundation, through the ACCESS Program, to promote services for physical rehabilitation.”

The Australia-Cambodia Cooperation for Equitable Sustainable Service (ACCESS) Program, in collaboration with PWDF and other rehabilitation stakeholders, is working to enable people with physical impairments to access their right to inclusion and participation in all aspects of life through physical rehabilitation.
