Community Based Inclusive Development (CBID) Program

Community-Based Inclusive Development (CBID) Program:

Launched recently by the Union Ministry of Social Justice.

  • The program aims to create a pool of grass-root rehabilitation workers at the community level who can work alongside ASHA and Anganwadi workers to handle cross-disability issues and facilitate inclusion of persons with disabilities in the society.
  • The program has been designed to provide competency-based knowledge and skills among these workers to enhance their ability to successfully discharging their duties.
  • These workers will be called ‘Divyang Mitra’ i.e. friends of persons with disabilities.
  • The National Board of Examination in Rehabilitation under the Rehabilitation Council of India will conduct examinations and award certificates to pass-out candidates.
