Response to Review




Thanks for the submission of your letter to the editor, which I have been hesitant in accepting. The fact is, most our readers are from low- and middle-income countries, and I would say that your letter is not in the interest of promoting rehabilitation services in these countries given the already usual lack of interest and political will to invest in the field of disability and rehabilitation there.
