Brazil Congress marks establishment of profession

The Associacao de Fisioterapeutas do Brasil (AFB) will be holding the 18th Brazilian Physical Therapy Congress on October 14-17 in Rio de Janeiro.
The scientific programme will be based on four of the tracks that WCPT uses for its international Congress.  This Congress marks the 40th anniversary of physical therapy establishing a firm legal basis in Brazil.
The event will commemorate the 40 years of physical therapists working with people to promote social inclusion. To reflect this, the scientific programme will address issues like accessibility, ICF, ergonomics and public health.   For further information, go to
