'Punarbhava' has been acknowledged in Executive Summary Report of the Working Group on Science and Technology for the Vulnerable Sections of Society constituted by Planning Commission, Government of India under section "Evolving Workable Technology Models for Disability and Elderly: Consolidation of efforts and Transfer of Technology"

Certain groups in the society often encounter discriminatory treatment and need special attention to avoid potential exploitation. This population constitutes what is referred to as Vulnerable Groups. Vulnerable groups are disadvantaged as compared to others mainly on account of their reduced access to basic services and the underlying determinants of health such as safe and potable drinking water, nutrition, housing, sanitation etc. The vulnerable groups that face discrimination in all spheres of life include Women, Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), Children, Aged, Disabled, Poor migrants, People living with HIV/AIDS and Sexual Minorities. Sometimes each group faces multiple barriers due to their multiple identities. For example, in a patriarchal society, disabled women face double discrimination of being a women and being disabled. This can be attributed to physical, mental as well as their financial attributes. Children and the elderly population face different kind of vulnerability. Mortality and morbidity among children are caused and compounded by poverty, their sex and caste position in society. All these have consequences on their nutrition intake, access to healthcare, environment and education. These factors directly impacts food security, education of parents and their access to correct health information and access to health care facilities. Some of the factors which impact and lead to further vulnerability.
