This paper examines the overall incidence of disability, and specifically of motor-disability, in low-income countries of the world. It observes the attitude of society roward those suffering from disabilities, and argues that there is a need for long term support for services to the motor-disabled by the international community. In order ro generate this support, low-income countries must develop highly efficient services that minimize the call on international resources. Such services are likely to be outside government. They will be within private nonprofit organizations: ring fenced, transparent, and capable of regular audit.
