From the President and Secretary General

This week, WCPT officially signed up to the International Committee of the Red Cross's (ICRC) Health Care in Danger project, combating violence against health workers (see below). It is unthinkable but undeniable that people seeking to help those injured and disabled in conflicts and emergencies are often themselves the subject of attacks. Yet, according to the ICRC, health personnel suffered over 1,800 violent incidents during 2013.


WCPT is proud to be part of the movement raising awareness of this issue. A groundswell of organisations making clear that such practices are intolerable makes it less easy for the perpetrators to think they are invisible or untouchable. And as the international organisation representing physical therapists, it is important that WCPT adds the profession's voice of protest to those of other health professions. We will be continuing to promote the campaign and sharing resource materials as it progresses.


Kind regards

Marilyn Moffat and Brenda J Myers
