Book your place on a congress course
Pre- and post-congress courses are selling fast. 

With some courses nearly sold out, now is the time to add a course to your registration.

WCPT urges UN member states to set commitments on NCDs
WCPT, as part of the World Health Professions Alliance (WHPA), has urged the UN member states to set clear and measurable commitments around noncommunicable diseases (NCDs).

At a recent meeting of the UN High-Level Meeting on Noncommunicable Diseases in New York, member states agreed a Political Declaration. This declaration emphasises the importance of strengthening health care systems and the healthcare workforce. But WCPT is concerned at the lack of detail and commitment for country targets, the omission of monitoring measures, and the lack of specific commitments and targets for funding.

Jonathon Kruger, WCPT Chief Executive Officer, said: ‘As healthcare professionals, physical therapists see first-hand the impact of noncommunicable diseases, and the negative impact of inaction. Noncommunicable diseases are increasing the bill and burden on already under-resourced health care systems across the world.
