Abstract

The World Health Organization (WHO) and Cochrane have been collaborating for a long time. As a part of "Rehabilitation 2030: a call for action", WHO's Department of Noncommunicable Diseases is developing a Package of Rehabilitation Interventions (PRI) which provides a set of prioritized evidence-based interventions, along with resource requirements for their delivery. Cochrane Rehabilitation were asked to contribute to the methodological development of the PRI, with particular involvement in the initial phases of the evidence selection and extraction. The whole project comprises six phases of development: 1) definition of the 20 health relevant conditions; 2) selection and extraction of the current best evidence and expertise; 3) identification of the interventions to be included by expert consensus and (4) definition of the resources needed for their provision; 5) external review of the preliminary PRI and (6) dissemination of the final version of PRI. This joint WHO-Cochrane project is a major contribution to the Cochrane Knowledge Translation Strategy. PIR will be provided by WHO to all countries, particularly to help health policy makers in planning and implementing rehabilitation into Healthcare Systems.
