Report finds 88% coverage rate in rehab services for disabled in 2019


More than 8.1 million disabled Chinese received subsidized rehabilitative services in 2019, ranging from artificial cochlea implantation for the hearing-impaired to psychological consultations for people with intellectual disabilities, a report said.


The number translates to a coverage rate of more than 88 percent among communities in need of such services, said a work report delivered at the Sixth National Congress of the China Association of Rehabilitation of Disabled Persons, which opened in Beijing on Monday.


The percentage was calculated based on a national database of disabled people who need physical rehabilitation, the report made by the association's executive vice-president, Xu Xiaoming, said.
