The 1st Asia-Pacific Community-Based Rehabilitation (CBR) Congress is being held 9 to 11 December 2008 at the United Nations Conference Center in Bangkok, Thailand. It is being sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) and the Royal Thai Government.

This conference offers CBR implementers, policy-makers, government organizations and agencies, parents groups, and representatives of disabled people’s organizations (DPOs) from all over the Asia-Pacific region to exchange experiences, to form a network, and learn about new trends in CBR. These topics will be examined within the context of the Asia-Pacific Decade of Disabled Persons (2003-2012) and the new Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

Objectives include: bringing stakeholders together to share resources; developing an alliance and resource base for the Asia-Pacific region among the United Nations, Government Organizations (GO), Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), Disabled People Organizations, and others; promoting CBR as a strategy for reducing poverty and enhancing the quality of life for persons with disabilities and their families; promoting the importance of implementing the CRPD, the Biwako Millennium Framework (BMF) and BMF+5; andpromoting community-based inclusive development for people with disabilities and their families.

According to the conference web site, the official language of the congress will be English. Efforts will be made for simultaneous translation in Arabic, Russian, Chinese, and Thai for all plenary sessions subject to level of participation from these regions. Congress proceedings also will be available in accessible format as much as possible.
