With 3 NGO members - Handicap International (HI), Norwegian Afghanistan Committee (NAC) and Swedish Committee for Afghanistan (SCA) ACBAR hosted the conference on Physical Rehabilitation services and advocacy for people with disabilities. Recommendations are that more healthcare personnel is needed in the field of rehabilitation, making jobs where needed. More access and better services for rehabilitation services because the protracted conflict leads annually to thousands of people injured. Also that rights should be ensured of people with disabilities to be able to participate in the society. http://www.acbar.org/upload/1555570197103.pdf
