The aim of this project is to create an overview of the organization of medical care for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) worldwide.

We are seeking international researchers with knowledge concerning the organization of medical care for people with IDD in their own country to:
- Report similarities and differences in medical care organizational arrangements for people with IDD compared to the general population;
- Collect and exchange information regarding the organization of medical care for people with IDD worldwide;
- Facilitate international learning about medical care research, policy, and practice about people with IDD around the world.
