Three national physiotherapy associations become new member organisations of World Physiotherapy
Three national physiotherapy associations have become new member organisations of World Physiotherapy.
The new member organisations are:
• Dominican Association of Physical Therapists (Asociación Dominicana de Terapeutas Físicos)
• Palestinian General Syndicate for Physical Therapy
• Vietnam Physical Therapy Association (Hội Vật lý trị liệu Việt Nam)
Membership of World Physiotherapy for the three new member organisations took effect from 1 January 2021. The total number of World Physiotherapy member organisations is now 125, representing more than 660,000 physiotherapists around the world.
At the general meeting held in Geneva in May 2019, the member organisations approved a new constitution, which allows for electronic voting outside a general meeting on resolutions that relate to the approval of an organisation’s application for membership.
At the time of the vote, World Physiotherapy had 122 member organisations, of which 94 took part in the electronic vote. A simple majority of the number of World Physiotherapy member organisations is required to approve applications for admission to membership of World Physiotherapy. The electronic vote was conducted using the online voting platform Election Buddy.
