What We Do


The holistic nature of CRP's work is reflected in the fact that its work covers several areas of development including human rights, poverty alleviation, health care provision and education.


CRP's headquarters is in Savar with an additional three functioning sub-centres throughout Bangladesh. CRP-Gonokbari is a residential vocational re-training centre for disabled women and girls, CRP-Gobindapur is a centre for out-patient and community based services in Sylhet Division and CRP-Mirpur is a thirteen-storey centre in Dhaka which provides medical, therapy and diagnostic services in addition to having several floors available for rent.





The Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralyzed, commonly known as CRP, was founded in 1979 by a small group of Bangladeshis and a British physiotherapist, Valerie Taylor. Miss Taylor came to the Bangladesh (then known as East Pakistan) in 1969 as a volunteer physiotherapist, and was appalled at the lack of facilities for the disabled and the often poor diagnosis by local doctors. The situation for the disabled was worsened in the aftermath of the 1971 Independence War, after which Bangladesh won its independence from Pakistan.



CRP has a strong commitment to training and believes that training plays a vital role if health care services in Bangladesh are to be strengthened and developed. At present, only a few health professionals in Bangladesh are trained adequately to provide appropriate treatment and rehabilitation.


In response to the lack of training facilities for health care professionals, BHPI was established in 1992 with the goal of producing highly skilled staff to work in health care provision and rehabilitation countrywide.
