Abstract

The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) was published in 2001 after over a decade of international discussion and field testing (see, for instance, Bickenbach, Chatterji, Badley, & Ustun, 1999). Its ratification by the World Health Assembly was keenly awaited in Australia, by people interested in working with a model of disability attuned to a human rights and equal opportunities approach, and by people wanting to use the new model in disability and health policy and information systems. This paper outlines developments being implemented and ideas being discussed in Australia, particularly with the Australian Collaborating Centre (ACC).1
