January 2016 -- Some children are born with disabilities, and others develop disabilities in their early years. These
children need security, care and love, best provided by keeping them with their parents or caregivers in
their own community.
This report underscores the urgent need for countries to move from institution-based care to community-based care. It provides guidance, based on promising practices from around the globe to ensure that children are able to live and thrive in the community.
