World Physical Therapy Day 2010 activities - Bangladesh

The programme of activities organised by the Bangladesh Physiotherapy Association in September included a public discussion about physiotherapy professional development involving several distinguished guests. It published a colourful poster containing the World Physical Therapy Day logo and slogan. This was distributed in different specialised and district hospitals, private clinics, and urban and rural settings to increase awareness among the public and doctors.

Bangladesh Television, the government’s national channel, aired a special documentary about the importance of physiotherapy to honour the day. There was an open disscussion programme for the All Health Professionals Group on 8th September.
