The Harare Children’s Rehabilitation Unit (CRU) was established to serve the needs of children with disabilities, including those with cerebral palsy (CP) in Zimbabwe. The primary objective of the CRU is to support the Ministry of Health and Child Care policies on hospital-based and community-based rehabilitation. The outreach programme at CRU was created to make rehabilitation therapy services accessible. Despite the services being provided for free, caregivers of children with CP do not adhere to appointments for therapy. This research explored some of the facilitators and barriers to attending rehabilitation therapy.
