Africa Region of WCPT

Stand number

The region has been active in supporting member organisations achieve better structured physical therapy services and education programmes. 

Having begun with five members in 1991, the region has expanded over the past decade and now has 17 members. 

The region has established a sub-regional federation for organisations from Francophone countries (mainly in West Africa). Physical therapy organisations from East African member countries have also started meeting on an annual basis, enabling organisations that are not yet WCPT members to get to know about the confederation.
