Greece has had to withdraw as host country for the IPTOP 2010 Congress because of the economic crisis. This means there will be no IPTOP Congress this year.

IPTOP (the International Organisation of Physical Therapists working with Older People) aims to collaborate with member organisations to host future IPTOP meetings and congresses as part of their main meetings so that members organisations in all regions have an opportunity to participate. It seeks invitations from member organisations willing to include a meeting within their main programme.
