About the region
The South America Region is involved in projects planning physiotherapy human resources for the region, establishing a conceptual model of physiotherapy practice, and examining the need to develop scientific research.
It recently held an academic workshop on the implications of globalisation on physiotherapy and kinesiology in Latin America, and agreed on a plan for the profession.
Its regional congresses have attracted representatives from all the region’s member organisations. The region's Executive Committee has also established a Physiotherapy Research Award.
The next regional meeting will be held in Puebla, Mexico on 5-6 November 2018. This will be followed by the South America Region of WCPT Congress on 7-9 November.
