Developed by the Surgeon General in collaboration with the Department's Office on Disability, it describes the particular challenges to health and wellbeing faced by persons of all ages with disabilities. It places their health squarely among the public health issues at the forefront of research, service delivery, financing, training and education and health care policy today.
