GHANA PHYSIOTHERAPY ASSOCIATION CELEBRATES WORLD PHYSIOTHERAPY DAY
Every year, the Ghana Physiotherapy community joins Physiotherapists around the globe to celebrate World Physiotherapy Day.
The day marks the unity and solidarity of the global physical therapy community. It is an opportunity to recognize the work that Physiotherapists do for their patients and community.
The campaign message of World Physiotherapy Day 2016 is “Add life to years”, under the umbrella theme of Movement for Health. The message builds on the findings of WHO’s World Report on Ageing and Health and a range of reports indicating the contribution and cost effectiveness of physiotherapy in healthy ageing.
