Disability screening, diagnosis and referral

Early identification is the first and foremost priority of DRRA to start the appropriate management which can limit the secondary complication and enhance the functional capacity of Children with Disabilities. Disabled Rehabilitation and Research Association (DRRA) along with the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) developed a national protocol on disability screening & diagnosis to support existing health systems for appropriate health and rehabilitation services. Moreover, this contributes to integrating disability and health-related rehabilitation within the health sector policies and interventions in Bangladesh. With the initiative, it has created the scope to equip PHC and district-level health workforce, particularly doctors in the public sector with the appropriate knowledge, skills, capacities, and attitudes toward persons with disabilities. This protocol will strengthen the health sector, particularly the primary and secondary health care provided by the public sector across the country.
