abstract
This Surgeon General's Call to Action to Improve the Health and Wellness of Persons with Disabilities emphasizes the centrality of health to the quality of our lives. Developed by the Surgeon General in collaboration with the Department's Office on Disability, it describes the particular challenges to health and wellbeing faced by persons of all ages with disabilities. It places their health squarely among the public health issues at the forefront of research, service delivery, financing, training and education and health care policy today. It also builds upon the Nation's efforts to promote wellness and disease prevention in all persons, including those with disabilities, as called for in the President's HealthierUS Initiative.
