Abstract

Person with disabilities in Pakistan are usually dehumanized, isolated and oppressed. There are little, if any, efforts to understand their health and social care needs. In developed nations; such as UK, USA, and European countries special facilities are provided for person with disabilities. United Nations estimates that there are about 650 million people with disabilities. However, accurate data regarding person with disabilities is not known in Pakistan. Limited evidence regarding the health and social care needs of person with disabilities in Pakistani context necessitates that this area should be focused in health education and research.
