disability, economics and ICF

“From the viewpoint of health economics, ICF will help monitor and explain health care and other disability costs. Measuring functioning and disabilities will make it possible to quantify the productivity loss and its impact on the lives of the people in each society. The classification will also be of great use in the evaluation of intervention programmes” (ICF: 19).
