ISPRM International Rehabilitation Week

INTRODUCTION

ISPRM is committed to providing access to information and opportunities to develop the skills of healthcare professionals globally through a range of programs, including the commitment to deliver reliable PRM information through our live webinars.

On November 13th 2020, ISPRM is celebrating 21 years since its foundation in 1999.

The Society has been increasingly successful in achieving its mission, both within PRM and through its collaboration with external stakeholders, due to its emergence as the pre-eminent international scientific and educational society for practitioners in the field of PRM and its evolving policy role in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations (UN).

Last year we celebrated the 20th anniversary by sharing video messages from the leadership and main contributors within the Society (read more).

This year we would like to use the date to announce a new campaign: ISPRM International Rehabilitation Week (November 30th - December 4th, 2020).

This campaign will take place via live webinars during the week of the International Day of Disabled Persons (December 3rd).

OUR GOAL

There is an urgent need to scale up awareness about disability and rehabilitation. Information, education and communication (IEC) initiatives with respect to rehabilitation must be strengthened worldwide especially in low-resource settings where the needs are greatest.

In response to this opportunity, the International Society for Physical Rehabilitative Medicine (ISPRM) seeks to establish a campaign to intensify global awareness on behalf of people living with disabilities worldwide and to showcase the solutions which can be tailored to every resource setting. This initiative is directly in line with the mission of the ISPRM (read more).
