This paper provides an overview of the current research on community-based rehabilitation (CBR) which can be found in the public domain.A brief background to the concept of CBR is given, and it is shown how much of this published research reflects the fundamental principles of CBR service delivery, technology transfer, community involvement,and organization and management. Specific research is discussed under these headings. Additional topics reviewed include the target populations of, and disabilities addressed in, CBR research, and the epidemiology of disability. A summary of locations where the research has taken place is also presented. It is concluded that, while there is still a need for additionalresearch and evaluationin the extensive field of CBR, there has been some reluctance to either undertake or permit such activities.However, CBR and ultimately the disabled can only benefit from placing research and evaluation of CBR into the public domain.
