Republic of Cyprus
The Project

The design and implementation of the New System of Assessing Disability and Functioning in Cyprus is an import project, which aims to establish a scientific, reliable and credible data basis for the assessment of disability and functioning, commonly accepted and used by state services and thus minimizing the efforts of persons with disabilities to follow multiple bureaucratic procedures in order to fulfill their rights.

The project of a total value of €1,8 million is co-financed by the European Social Fund and concerns the establishment of an Assessment Centre in Nicosia, the issue of Assessment Manuals based on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health of the World Health Organisation, special training of doctors and other health professionals etc.

The New system will provide credible and reliable comprehensive reports on disability and functioning through professional and modern assessment procedures. By the end of the assessment, a person will know and have a report not only on special needs for care, technical equipment, facilities, support, but also on capabilities and new prospects for training, employment, inclusion.
