TEHRAN – Comprehensive rehabilitation centers will be inaugurated in all provinces of the country by the Iranian calendar month of Bahman (January 21-February 19), an official with the Red Crescent Society (IRCS) has said.

Comprehensive rehabilitation centers offering physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, orthosis and prosthetics services are being set up in all provinces within next 3 months, IRNA quoted Hasan Safarieh as saying on Wednesday.

The centers provide basic rehabilitation services; the IRCS plans to establish specialized rehabilitation clinics throughout the country following the opening of the aforesaid centers, he added.

He went on to say that some 10 percent of the population in Iran are suffering disabilities, of which about two percent are financially struggling and need help and support to be provided with rehabilitation services.

So far, the buildings and equipment needed to establish the centers have been purchased, he said, adding that we made great efforts to inaugurate the rehabilitation centers in advance helping those in need.
