Asia Western Pacific Region of WCPT

Stand number

The Asia Western Pacific (AWP) region is one of the most populous geographical regions of the WCPT. The AWP region is a region where physical therapy is well established in some countries and emerging in others; therefore, the variability in physical therapy practice is quite marked. There are a number of priority areas for the region including resources of entry-level and continued education, development of accreditation standards, support for regulation of the profession, and accessibility of service. These issues are key to the development and growth of physical therapy in many countries in the region. Addressing them will assist in maintaining standards of practice and education as well as enhancing public health and wellness in the region.
