WHO communications campaign on NCDs
The World Health Organization (WHO) is issuing an invitation to contribute ideas and stories to the WHO communications campaign on NCDs (non communicable diseases).
Part of the campaign is to bring pictures and stories of people affected by NCDs to the forefront and ensure the human voice is heard. By submitting personal journeys through a web portal, “NCDs&me”, individuals will be able to change perceptions on NCDs, and ignite interest and action to halt the NCD epidemic worldwide. You can share your story whether you are a physical therapist or work in health care policy at:

This six-week course is a collaboration between Physiopedia and the ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross) and has been developed by a group of topic specialists from across the world.

New physical activity series by The Lancet
Following on from its first series in 2012, The Lancet has published its second series on physical activity, which presents updates including progress in epidemiological research, global surveillance, intervention strategies, and policy actions. The papers also feature the largest harmonised meta-analysis on the joint health effects of sedentary behaviour and physical activity, and the first global estimate of the economic burden of physical inactivity.
The series encourages policy makers to take physical activity more seriously and to provide sufficient capacity and funding to implement national policies. Without a rapid increase in action, the WHO target of a 10% reduction in physical inactivity by 2025 will not be reached.

For immediate release

World Physical Therapy Day press release:
Physical therapists help add life to years
Physical therapists can help older people to be independent, improving quality of life and reducing health care costs. This is the message from thousands of physical therapists across the world as they prepare to take part in World Physical Therapy Day on 8th September 2016.
Every year, World Physical Therapy Day allows individual physical therapists and WCPT member organisations to celebrate their contribution to global health. This year's event builds on the success of 2015, when thousands of physical therapists used the #worldptday hashtag on Twitter to unite events across the world.
This World Physical Therapy Day uses the theme “Add life to years” and the hashtag #addlifetoyears, following the World Health Organisation's World Report on Ageing and Health which says that “maintenance of functional ability has the highest importance” for older people.
The World Confederation for Physical Therapy played a significant role in the consultations for the new WHO ageing and health strategy. “World Physical Therapy Day is the first opportunity since the adoption of the report for physical therapists to show how important the profession is in ensuring healthy and active older people,” says WCPT President Emma Stokes.
“The evidence of the clinical and cost-effectiveness of physical therapy for older adults is incontrovertible. World Physical Therapy Day, with its focus on adding life to years, gives physical therapists a great platform to communicate this message to older people, the wider community and health care policy and decision-makers.”
By 2050 the global population will include two billion people aged 60 or over, and 400 million aged 80 or over. Physical therapists have a key role in helping people with long-term conditions achieve their goals, fulfil their potential and participate fully in society.
“Every day frontline physical therapists are transforming lives through the application of their clinical skills and experience. This is particularly so when working with older people whose health needs increase as they age”, says WCPT Chief Executive Officer Jonathon Kruger.
“Enabling older people to maintain their independence and continue to participate in society is a key skill of physical therapists around the world. In the coming years these skills will be more in demand and the global profession is willing and able to meet that challenge.”
This press release is available as a PDF download.

Background information
About physical therapy
Physical therapists (known in many countries as physiotherapists) are experts in developing and maintaining people’s ability to move and function throughout their lives. With an advanced understanding of how the body moves and what keeps it from moving well, they promote wellness, mobility and independence. They treat and prevent many problems caused by pain, illness, disability and disease, sport and work related injuries, ageing and inactivity.
Physical therapists are educated over several years, giving them a full knowledge of the body’s systems and the skills to treat a wide range of problems. This education is usually university-based, at a level that allows physical therapists to practise independently. Continuing education ensures that they keep up to date with the latest advances in research and practice. Many physical therapists are engaged in research themselves.
More detailed information about what physical therapists do can be found on WCPT’s website:
Campaign resources
WCPT has pulled together a collection of additional resources on ageing including research supporting the role of physical therapy in promoting quality of life in older people and information for the public:
About World Physical Therapy Day

The day was established by WCPT in 1996, and marks the date on which WCPT was founded in 1951. More details and toolkit at:

Dia Mundial da Fisioterapia: oportunidade para os Fisioterapeutas destacarem seu papel como especialistas em saúde das Pessoas Idosas

O Dia Mundial da Fisioterapia será comemorado no dia 8 de Setembro de 2016; este ano a Confederação Mundial de Fisioterapia WCPT recomenda que os Fisioterapeutas de todo o mundo divulguem o seu importante papel no envelhecimento saudável "Acrescentando Vida aos Anos".

A escolha dessa mensagem é fruto do Relatório da Organização Mundial de Saúde OMS sobre Envelhecimento e Saúde, que  enfatiza:"a manutenção da capacidade funcional é da maior importância para os idosos". A WCPT tem desempenhado um papel significativo nas conversações com a OMS, o que resultou na nova estratégia de envelhecimento e saúde da organização.Em 2050 a população mundial contará com dois bilhões de pessoas com 60 anos ou mais, e 400 milhões com 80 anos ou mais.

A cada ano, o Dia Mundial da Fisioterapia oportuniza aos Fisioterapeutas destacar seu papel como especialistas em   mobilidade funcional.
