The World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) provides a biopsychosocial framework for understanding all the factors that should be considered while managing any health condition. The ICF has been employed for clinical, academic, research, and policymaking purposes in developed as well as developing countries. There is a great disparity in the representation in the literature regarding knowledge and potential application of the ICF in professional practice around the world especially from low middle-income countries like Pakistan. This study aims to evaluate the profile and knowledge of health professionals in Pakistan about the application of ICF in their practice.
