The theme for World PT Day 2020 will focus on rehabilitation and COVID-19.
The toolkit for this year's World PT Day will be available soon on the World Physiotherapy website. It includes infographics and posters aimed at the general public promoting the role of physiotherapy in rehabilitation and COVID-19, and infographics focusing on the delivery of physiotherapy via telehealth.
Volunteers are already working on translations of the World PT Day materials into Arabic, Bangla, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Chinese, French, Gujarati, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Kurdish, Latvian, Montenegrin, Norway, Romanian, Serbian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Vietnamese. If you are interested in translating any of the materials, please contact email@example.com
As part of the response to COVID-19, many countries have introduced restrictions about holding large events and gatherings. Please consider this when making plans for World PT Day. We will be producing a series of graphics to promote the day via social media.
