Alberta is Rehabilitation Lead of Interburns and recently joined the steering committee for the WHO’s World Rehabilitation Alliance whose “mission is to support the implementation of the Rehabilitation 2030 Initiative through advocacy activities”.
Throughout this discussion we talk about Alberta’s involvement in Resurge Africa, Interburns and the WHO. We dive into the cultural, structural and political challenges to physiotherapy care in SubSaharan Africa and discuss the global burden of disease.
Alberta also shares her hope for the future of physiotherapy, and outlines what is required on the community and policy levels to achieve these goals.
