For the third year the Association des Masseurs Kinésithérapeutes du Togo (AMKITO) celebrated World Physical Therapy Day.

Two main activities took place.

  • On Friday 6th September a seminar and debate was held on the theme of multi-disciplinary healthcare for children with motor neurone disease.
  • On Sunday 8th September 2013, a football tournament between AMKITO, the National Association of Nurses, the Association of Students, professional speech therapists and the Association of Ortho Prosthetist Technicians took place. The aim of AMKITO was to strengthen the ties between paramedical associations whilst at the same time, promoting physical therapy and a multi-disciplinary approach to healthcare.
