Community Based Rehabilitation in Botswana the Myth of the Hidden Disabled
1997 0-7734-8624-0
The Community-Based Rehabilitation program (CBR) was developed by WHO, with the initial idea that it should be linked to already-existing infrastructures. The program was field-tested in several countries. This book is based on fieldwork done in Botswana in 1981-84 and is the only monograph based on an intensive study of the implementation and functioning of the CBR program. As such, the volume is a groundbreaker in the fields of social/community medicine and rehabilitation. It will also be of great interest to those in the growing field of Medical Anthropology. The author is the co-editor of Disability and Culture, a collection of articles recently published by the University of California Press.
