Background-Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common paediatric physical disability. Children with CP often present with multiple impairments and activity limitations. This makes them often reliant on caregivers for assistance in functional activities. As CP is a lifetime condition, long term caregiving may eventually negatively affect the health related quality of life (HRQoL) of caregivers. HRQoL is context-specific, therefore, we thus set to determine the HRQoL of Zimbabwean primary caregivers of children with CP.
