Rehabilitation in emergencies
The World Health Organization (WHO) has published a report aimed at emergency medical teams (EMTs) on the Minimum technical standards and recommendations for rehabilitation. This document, a first of its kind, clearly sets out the standards for rehabilitation and provides guidance on building or strengthening the capacity of EMTs. The document is available for download at:

The document is the result of collaboration between a working group of rehabilitation experts convened by WHO and external consultations. WCPT was a reviewing organisation. 
Healthcare Information For All
As a supporter of Healthcare Information For All (HIFA), WCPT is encouraging organisations and individuals to lend their support and join the campaign.

HIFA believes that every person and every health worker should have access to the healthcare information they need to protect their own health and the health of those for whom they are responsible.
