A large number of casualties caused by war are in need of medical rehabilitation. Rehabilitation facilities are unable to cope adequately with them without advance planning and preparedness. Guidelines are suggested for the planning and preparation of a hospital rehabilitation system for war, including the formulation of policies, expanding and strengthening of existing rehabilitation facilities, and converting institutions, as well as securing the necessary human and material resources. It is also suggested that such plans and preparations should be adapted to form a basis for meeting rehabilitation needs caused by natural and civil disasters.
