Samadhan is a full member representing India at the Asian Federation on Intellectual Disabilities. At a Conference -- "Hope for the Retarded in Asia" - held from 19-22 November 1973 in Manila, Philippines, under the auspices of UNESCO, the 420 delegates from 21 countries present unanimously recommended for the establishment of the Asian Federation for the Mentally Retarded (AFMR). Thus the Federation was inaugurated.

Since then an Asian Conference on Mental Retardation (ACMR) had been held once every two years in each of the full member countries, as given in Conferences section. At the 18th ACMR held in Taipei, the name of the Federation was officially changed to the ASIAN FEDERATION ON INTELLECTUAL DISABILITIES (AFID), and the Conference henceforth will be known as the AFID Conference. AFID Secretariat is managed by the Korean Association on Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities (KAIDD).
