Rehabilitation aims to optimize functioning and reduce disability in individuals with health conditions in interaction with their environment. It is a cost-effective service that anyone may need at some point in their lives. Universal health coverage and the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals cannot be achieved without access to quality rehabilitation services without financial hardship.

The evolution over time can be viewed as a slideshow. The tabs “Graph”, “Table”, and “Notes” provide further options and information for exploring the data. Graphs can be downloaded as images with different file formats available using the triple bar icon in the top right corner of the graph.
