Mauritius

The Association of Physiotherapists in Mauritius celebrated World Physical Therapy Day 2013 under the “Movement for Health” theme.

The association participated in an assessment, with physiotherapists advising patients who had undergone amputations and required a below or above knee prosthesis.

The association also took part in training teachers who are working with children with special needs.  The aim of the training was to emphasise the importance of physiotherapy for children with special needs and promote the value of “Movement for Health”.
