Qingdao, China – Construction on the University of Rehabilitation Studies, a higher education institution designed for cultivating rehabilitation studies talent, formally began with an inauguration ceremony in Qingdao, east China’s Shangdong Province.

This comes after the Ministry of Education officially green-lighted the construction on the institution, which, to be sponsored by Shangdong Province and based in Qingdao, has the joint support of the China Disabled Persons’ Federation (CDPF) and the National Health Commission.

Addressing the ceremony, CDPF President Zhang Haidi expressed the hope that the University of Rehabilitation Studies could cultivate more talented people and help bring better rehabilitation services to persons with disabilities.

There are about 85 million persons with disabilities in China, and rehabilitation is an urgent need for persons with disabilities and tens of millions of families. The country also has more than 40 million older people who have lost the ability in full or part to take care of themselves and need high-quality rehabilitation services.
