What is RBM? The definition for Rehabilitasi Bersumber Daya Masyarakat (RBM) by WHO was changing over time. RBM or CBR (Community Based Rehabilitation) which was initially emphasized the medical or education services, changes into a concern on the equal rights and lowering of poverty of people with special needs. Recently, RBM was interpreted by WHO (World Health Organization) as a strategy to improve the access to the rehabilitation service for people with different abilities to utilize the local resources in optimal way.
