The ICRC works on improving access and quality of services available to people with disabilities, by providing technical and material support to centres nationwide run by the National Authority of Prosthetics and Orthotics (NAPO), and as to the Khartoum Cheshire Home, a children's rehabilitation programme in Khartoum.

While the physical rehabilitation programme was launched to support victims of armed conflict, today people seeking assistance in NAPO also include victims of diabetes, Madura foot and road accidents. The ICRC has been supporting physical rehabilitation services in Sudan since 1990.
