CBR Team International was founded in 2011 by Wouter De Groote, a medical doctor with a specialty in rehabilitation (PMR), who has a passion for policy, management and clinical work in low and middle income countries.
In January 2013, Dr. De Groote obtained the certificate of ‘development aid’ from the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and he graduated at the postgraduate course on ‘Rehabilitation management in Southern countries’ of HI and UCL (Université Catholique de Louvain). This is where he has met other members of the Team.
CBR Team International was founded to improve rehabilitation globally, and to provide services to those in need. The organisation is equipped with many profiles: professionals (ie. physical therapists, ergotherapists, orthoprosthetists, psychologist and medical doctors) to support the missions, project management and transfer of knowledge, and a fundraising team.
