Message Of Country Director

Disabled proportions of societies are not only open to physical, psychological, and social agony but their surroundings also share the pains, and never the less, the fact that the nations are devoid of the Productive work force that could contribute to national income oblige us all to come up with efforts to help, support, and rehabilitate the Persons with Disability (PWDs). According to latest populations census of Pakistan 2.5 percent of our national population is suffering from disability. There could be a number of causes underlying the scenario; however the need of the moment is to respond the situation in a comprehensive and well planed approach. According to reliable research, about 66% of the PWDs live in rural areas that are devoid of relevant facilities, in most due to acute poverty and access.

The situation in urban centers is not much too different. Looking at the situation in Pakistan one without more ado recognizes the factors of access and availability of appropriate services, skills and research that require immediate attention. It is in this respect that today HHRD can humbly claim to have rehabilitated more the 0.14 million Persons with physical, visual, and hearing disabilities through its comprehensive Rehabilitation and health programs. Initiation of HHRD Institute of Rehabilitation science in a purpose built rehabilitation complex at KPK is another effective link to the approach for contribution towards rehabilitation of PWDs in Pakistan. The Thought beneath is that through HHIRS an educational and rehabilitation facility that is no less than the standards provided by the best institutes of the kind in developed countries exists. We ensure that best available academic, clinical, and management human resource and environment is available. I am sure that the Institute will serve through its clinical clutch and academic niche the cause of disabled people as they deserve it.
