Community Based Rehabilitation Workshops In Peru

In February, 2009. David Werner, pioneer in Primary Health Care and Community Based Rehabilitation --facilitated two workshops on innovative technology for and with disabled children and their families in Peru. On the first workshop, conducted in the poor barrios of Lima, David was joined by his former student and long time friend, Allison Akana, a Physician’s Assistant and researcher in women’s health. Allison skillfully and perceptively filmed the entire workshop.

 

Community Based Rehabilitation Workshops in India

In 2005, David Werner visited India where he conducted CBR workshops in three regions. These workshops provided material for three new extensive slide shows, each narrated, detailing the interactive process of the workshop participants, the disabled individuals, and their families. These heartwarming, yet pragmatic stories show how, by working together and putting the disabled person at the center of the process, assistive devices can be tailor made to better fit his or her needs.
