The United Nations has the vision to improve the quality of life and living standards for all of mankind by 2030. This vision is far-reaching and includes issues ranging from ending poverty, spurring economic growth, tackling climate change, and improving health and education. Rehabilitation has a role to play in meeting these goals, by improving health and well-being for all people worldwide. This can be achieved by setting attainable goals, recategorising how rehabilitation fits into health systems, and providing support and infrastructure to rehabilitation education and professional development in low- and middle- resource areas.
The aim of this course is to familiarise the reader with this global initiative to improve the quality of life and living standards of all people, and how rehabilitation will play a role in this vision.
