The Hong Kong Society for Rehabilitation was first commissioned as World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Rehabilitation in 1986. We are one of six WHO Rehabilitation Centers in the Western Pacific Region.
The key focus of our activities from 2020-2024:
- In accordance with the WHO Western Pacific Regional framework on rehabilitation, we will contribute to the capacity building of health-care workers and carers for elderly services.
- We will support WHO’s works to assist countries by engaging communities and sharing knowledge or experiences in strengthening the health systems to better deliver rehabilitation.
- In collaboration with the WHO and other WHO collaborating centres in the Western Pacific Region, we will share good practices in implementing “WHO global disability action 2014-2021” and promoting the excellent practices of rehabilitation in health systems.
