Rehabilitation International (RI) is an international disability rights organization with a secretariat based in New York U.S.. Founded in 1922, RI has more than 700 member organizations in 90 countries. A major focus of its activity since 1999 has been work towards establishing the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

In the late 1960s, it was responsible for designing the now-ubiquitous International Symbol of Access, featuring a stylized person in a wheelchair on a blue background.

RI publishes the periodical International Rehabilitation Review.
