About Indian Physiotherapy Forum - Qatar

Few years ago a group of visionary physiotherapists from India working in Qatar came together to form an organization to represent them professionally. This dream became a solid reality in 2011 when about 65 physiotherapists organized the first general body meeting. This day also marked the unanimous selection of the first office bearers of the forum.

The first core team members worked hard to get a foothold among other sister concerns and bring forward the role of physiotherapists in the health sector. A lot of effort by many of them gave us the legal viability to be established as a forum and the By-Law was drafted. These along with a formal request were submitted to the president of Indian Cultural Center. While waiting to be recognized by the Embassy of India and affiliation with ICC the forum was active by joining hands with other organizations and SCH to participate in various health camps. In May 2013 the first group of office bearers completed their tenure and a new panel was selected to represent the forum. They dutifully took forward the good work started. Four members met with His Excellency the Ambassador of India to Qatar, Mr.Sanjeev Arora concerning the affiliation. Hard work paid off and on 17th June, 2013 we received affiliation with Indian Cultural Center under the aegis of Embassy of India, Qatar. With this new found recognition the members of IPFQ got a boost to their morale to carry forward the good will and social responsibilities.

Official Inauguration of IPFQ was on 1st November 2013. From then until today the forum has been active in the social, health and professional development sectors by organizing various cultural, educational and philanthropic activities in Qatar.Official Inauguration of IPFQ was on 1st November 2013.
