This paper has presented the basis of one approach to addressing disability in developing countries. Community Approaches to Handicap in Development (CAHD) builds on the pioneering work done by others in the CBR field and presents a bridge between CBR and development. The brief rationale and examples included here represent only the skeleton of CAHD. More comprehensive descriptions and practical tools for implementation are available in the CAHD toolkit produced in 2001, developed by CBM International, Centre for Disability and Development and Handicap International.
