Taiwan

The Taiwan Physical Therapy Association (TPTA) launched a nationwide celebration for World Physical Therapy Day 2016, and the second Taiwan Physical Therapist Day, with the theme of “Add Life to Years”.

The campaign activities were organised and funded by TPTA to encourage physical therapists to signify the importance and contribution of the physical therapy profession in Taiwan, especially to raise the awareness of healthy ageing with increasing physical activity and exercise.  Physical therapists working at hospitals, facilities and universities were urged to take part in the campaign. In total 18 events took place around the country and three films were produced to show the important role physical therapists can play in an ageing society.
