  🧑‍🦽Imagine... Empowered and Resilient Workers in the Pacific 🧑‍🦽

💥 What’s the Big Deal: 

By using tools such as pre-employment transition services, personalized healthcare, and digital technologies, 💻vocational rehabilitation services will help workers with disabilities achieve competitive integrated employment, increase their income and independence, and improve their quality of life.🌈Vocational rehabilitation is a vital sector for the Pacific region, as it provides opportunities and support for workers with disabilities, who often face discrimination, marginalization, and poverty. 🏢Vocational rehabilitation can also help workers with disabilities cope with the impacts of domestic risks, such as natural disasters, pandemics, cyberattacks, and social unrest, which can disrupt their employment and well-being. Vocational rehabilitation requires imagination and innovation to address the diverse and dynamic needs of workers with disabilities and to prepare them for the future of work.
