Malta

The Malta Association of Physiotherapists (MAP) celebrated World Physical Therapy Day 2013, by consolidating collaboration with the national council responsible for sports promotion in Malta. Through this collaboration MAP participated in various national events to promote physical activity amongst the general public in with the main objective to engage exercise into family activities. This collaboration will give MAP more exposure on a national level.

The national events took place over a whole week. The themes that MAP addressed were women's health, back care promotion, physiotherapy and dance, physiotherapy screening programmes, veterinary physiotherapy and group stretching classes.

Part of the activities included the start of a “Now we Move” campaign which was launched by the Parliamentary Secretary for research and Innovation, Youth and Sports.
