Occupational Therapy Africa Regional Group

Occupational Therapy Regional Group - OTARG

Ghana 2017

OTARG is a regional group of World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT).

The Occupational Therapy Africa Regional Group was formed to promote Occupational Therapy in the Africa by;

promoting co-operation amongst OT’s, OT Associations, professional ethics, facilitate regional exchange, placement of OTs and OT Students, facilitate the exchange of information,  and advance the standards of practice in OT among other objectives. 

Otarg which started with 9 member countries in 1996 has by 2015 grown to  17 African country members with expectation of growing bigger as more countries continue to join the Group as well.

As an African Occupational Therapy regional Group, OTARG has held a biennal Congress which brings together Occupational therapists and Non OT professionals from Africa and beyond  to converge in a chosen African country to deliberate and share for the purpose of promoting the profession in Africa.  The latest congress was hosted by Uganda in 2015

The next OTARG congress will be hosted by Ghana in 2017. CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
