About the Strengthening Rehab Services and Health Systems Project
With funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and support from the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT), Ukrainian Association of Physical Therapy (UAPT), National Association of People with Disabilities (NAPD), and the Republican Medical College of Tajikistan (RMC), UCPW anticipates implementing the Strengthening Rehab Services and Health Systems (SRSHS) project. The project works to strengthen rehab service delivery systems in Ukraine and Tajikistan by contributing to the development of policy and regulatory frameworks that are rooted in practical, local hospital-tested experiences; supporting physical therapy professionalization; and raising awareness of the importance of rehab services for quality of life, particularly for those affected by conflict. Ultimately, the SRSHS project will strengthen the skills of rehab providers in the two countries, reach persons with disabilities (PWDs) and medical professionals with awareness-raising activities, and increase access to rehab services for PWDs.
