    8. 8. The International Classification ofFunctioning, Disability and Health (ICF) fromWorld Health Organization (WHO)“acknowledges that every human beingcan experience a decrement in health andthereby experience some degree ofdisability. Disability is not something thatonly happens to a minority of humanity. TheICF thus ‘mainstreams’ the experience ofdisability and recognises it as a universalhuman experience.” http://www.who.int/classifications/icf/en/ 8
