World Physical Therapy Day 2010 activities - Fiji

The Fiji Physiotherapy Association began the celebrations with a conference on “Movement for Health and Diabetes” on 4th and 5th September. The conference was opened by the Permanent Secretary for Health in Fiji, Dr Salanieta Saketa, and the guest speaker was Margot Skinner, the WCPT Executive Committee member for the Asia Western Pacific region.

The conference was attended by 50 participants, of whom 37 were physiotherapists from all over Fiji. It ended with fun and networking, and interviews featured in media coverage.  During the week of 6th to 10th September, each physiotherapy centre in Fiji hosted its own community outreach programmes as well as in-house celebrations.
