What I have learned about rehabilitation and health care coverage.

Rehabilitation is a combination of interventions and helps persons with a health condition to recover function or to remain functional, and prevent disability. It should be available for all the population, not only persons with disability or long-term impairments. Rehabilitations is an important component of UHC, including prevention, promotion, treatment, rehabilitation and palliative care. Rehab should be available at all level of health care, and services should be timely, of high-quality and affordable. Rehabilitation services can be provided at different settings, like health facilities, at home and the community according to the context and the health structure. Every person should receive an individualizes plan of rehabilitation according to their needs and personal preferences.
rehabilitation helps persons to manage their condition, prevent subsequent health conditions, and remain productive.
