Introduction
The Bihar State has been a worst sufferer in the area of Health and Medical services, specially in the field of Handicapped persons of the state. The services render by the state is very poor and negligible. There is no Rehab Centers in the state run by the state or central governments, which can be mentioned as a state level. A few center has been established by the central government with very poor man power and other resources. So, they are doing a token service on the name of serving the disabled. Some of the voluntary organization are also trying their best but they lack of financial support and other resources, thus, they are lacking behind.

The overall scenarios, in the field of Rehabilitations is much alarming in the state and required immediate concentration on the matter.

In the light of deem scenarios prevailing in the state to rehabilitate the disabled, IIHER has resolved take up the task of rehabilitation of all the disabled of the state as a Mission and christening the project "Mission Rehab - Bihar".

To achieve the goal we have a forum constituted and many professionals in the field of Rehabilitation and eminent persons has been joined hands to carry out the mission.
