Kenya has scanty NGOs that support programs on rehabilitation and disability. A few of the current NGOs implementing a rehabilitation program in Kenya include the clinton health access initiative (CHAI). This NGO support access to rehabilitation and assistive technology. The Association of physically disabled of Kenya (APDK), support rehabilitation outreaches and assistive technology as well.
Kenya at times uses the WHO guide to action.
I work in rehabilitation space and have come across many persons with disabilities. Their experience in accessing health care services and rehabilitation has been somehow challenging due to various barriers, such as, communication barrier, physical barrier and stigma and discrimination
