As a member organization of Asian Confederation for Physical Therapy (ACPT) since 2013, the Macau Physical Therapists Association (MPTA) is honored to host the 15th Asian Confederation for Physical Therapy (ACPT) Congress in conjunction with the 20th Anniversary of MPTA Scientific Meeting in 2020. This event will be an important milestone for the physical therapy profession in Macau, and will have a positive impact on its ongoing development. It is a great honour to be the Chairman of the Organizing Committee for this Congress.
The growing population of Macau is currently close to 700,000. There are about 140 registered physical therapists providing healthcare services to the local community in various settings. Although our Association is small and is at a relatively young age of 20 years, we will unite the strength and youthful energy of our membership to prepare for the first international physical therapy event in Macau. In addition to exploring new advances in the physical therapy profession and bringing inspiration to participants, we hope that participants can experience Macau, a unique destination that preserves a multi-cultural heritage alongside state-of-the-art entertainment facilities.
The theme of this Congress is “Building Healthier and Stronger Communities”. We are hoping to further establish the role of physical therapists in the community, and build closer ties with the international community of physical therapists.
We wish to capture your interest in attending the 15th Asian Confederation for Physical Therapy (ACPT) Congress and look forward to welcoming you in Macau in 2020.
