Primary Health Centres Doctors Training
Since 2002 around 70 batches were provided sensitization training to doctors of Primary Health Centres (PHC) on ‘Disability Management’ at the IHRDC. The PHC programme has had a tremendous impact on services to persons with disabilities in Tamil Nadu. The PHC doctors have already identified thousands of persons with disabilities and referred them to educational and rehabilitation programmes.
