Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia

For World Physiotherapy Day on 8th September, the Association of Physiotherapists of the Republic of Macedonia was actively involved in the WCPT campaign through several activities related to the topic - "Through physical activity to better mental health".

Physiotherapists - representatives of the association, distributed promotional material at the square in Skopje. This material included a presentation of this year's theme in celebration of the day.

At the same time, the citizens who were present there, were given advice on how physical and mental health are two components which depend on each other, as physical activity offers prevention of the occurrence of depression, anxiety and improves the quality of life and self-esteem.

Also, in all of the cities throughout the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, posters were placed in the health institutions.

The celebration of the World Physiotherapy Day was accompanied by an Educational Seminar on the topic: "Rehabilitation in Orthopedics and Traumatology". There were also certificates of gratitude given to prominent physiotherapists who contributed to the activities of the Association.
