Benin

On 8th September the Benin Association of Physiotherapists (ABEKIR) celebrated World Physical Therapy Day under the theme "Movement for Health” by organising a 10 kilometre march in the capital city Porto-Novo, followed by an outdoor presentation.

Under the banner of "fight against physical inactivity", physiotherapists and speech therapists took place in the march, along with participants from local sports clubs.

At the end of the march, ABEKIR made a presentation to the participants on the spinal ergonomics and the role of the physiotherapist within the population and the health system. These different presentations translated into the local Goun language were supported by the distribution of leaflets on physiotherapy.
