Abstract

The aim of this paper is to explore the impact of community-based rehabilitation programs on the well-being of deprived persons with disabilities from a multidimensional perspective using a multilevel analysis. This approach explicitly takes into account potential bias due to the fact that persons with disabilities live and interact in different local contexts (villages).

Data were obtained from a large-scale survey in two districts of Karnataka State (India).

The impact of community-based rehabilitation on deprived persons with disabilities was positive and significant. Its magnitude varies across different dimensions of well-being.
