To mark World Physical Therapy Day, the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (Sri Lanka) conducted a series of events over two months.

The objective of the programme was to enhance public awareness of prevention, pre- and post-management of physical fitness from some diseases, injuries and complications. The programme consisted of five free physiotherapy clinics, four public awareness workshops and two sport injury management workshops serving over a thousand individuals. This series also included twelve media (television) coverage.

With the guidance and contribution of 35 physiotherapists representing CSP (SL ) the final day of the programme was held on World Physical Therapy Day on 8th September in Ruwanwella, a rural town in Sri Lanka offering free clinical and awareness events to demonstrate the value and importance of physical therapy to the public.
