El Salvador

In El Salvador, 40.6% of people were below the national poverty line in 2011, based on the World Bank’s data.

El Salvador ratified the UNCRPD in 2007. Since then, physical rehabilitation services at government facilities – such as the Instituto Salvadoreño de Rehabilitación Integral (ISRI), the national reference center – are free of charge. However, the provision of services is hindered by a lack of funding and qualified professionals and restrictive importation policies.
