Summary This thesis explores the role of government and non-government organisations and international agencies in community based rehabilitation in Iraq. It examines the possibility of initiating and running community-based rehabilitation programmes for people with disability by NGOs regardless of Iraqi government commitment or participation. The research results show that implementation of CBR in Iraq is vital but not widely- spread. Non-government organisations seem more active, committed and capable in the time being to initiate, run and manage CBR programmes compared to the government of Iraq. Despite the high numbers of people with disabilities and lack of capacity to respond to their needs, there is little evidence that the Iraqi government has made efforts in adopting CBR as a cost-effective response.
