World Confederation for Physical Therapy
Founded in 1951, the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) is the sole international voice for physical therapy, representing more than 350 000 physical therapists worldwide through its 112 member organisations.
WCPT also has several sub-groups that are independent organisations in their own right, representing specific areas of physical therapy. There are currently 12 sub-groups of WCPT.
WCPT operates as a non-profit organisation and is registered as a charity in the UK.
Saudi physical therapists have good relationships with WCPT through the SPTA, which is a member organisation of the WCPT, and through individual few physical therapists who sit on WCPT subgroups withInternational Organization of Physical Therapists in Women's Health.
The current list of Saudi representatives of IOPTWH in WCPT sub-groups are: Dr. Hana Alsobyel, Dr. Rafeef Aljuraifaniand Dr. Abeer Altamimi.
We hope that we will have more representatives for other subgroups in the near future.
