The International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) is a tool used in clinical settings, research, and policy development to understand functioning and disability. Many countries have adopted the ICF as a reference framework to help develop health and social policies and legislation on disabilities and related areas. As a result, the ICF has a broad application at the population and health and social service levels. This course will discuss the application of the ICF in developing health and administration policies at local, national and international levels.
This course aims to describe how the ICF can be used in health administration, policy development, and programme evaluation.
