The purpose of this paper is to provide a background to chronic conditions and disability and introduce manuscripts that were part of a recent forum examining this issue. The paper begins with an overview of definitions of disability and chronic conditions. It then presents several reasons why disentangling chronic conditions and disability is important. Finally, it briefly describes the forum manuscripts before making a call for understanding the dynamics of chronic condition and disability to promote the health of all.
