Naga City CBR - The Parent Advocates for Visually Impaired Children, in partnership with LibREHAB, the community-based rehabilitation (CBR) program of the UST-College of Rehabilitation Sciences, who caters to the University’s partner communities and sectoral partners, focusing on persons with disabilities and senior citizens , Perkins School for the Blind, City of Naga and the Universidad de Sta. Isabel, joined hands in this CBR project. UST-CRS initiated a research-based CBR program in Naga City. This is a five-year program anchored on the CBR Management Cycle. The cycle began in 2015 with situational analysis which required the development of assessment tools that are culturally adapted and will allow for the collection of locally and globally comparative health and disability data that will serve as basis for program planning and design.
