Rehabilitation World Congress 2020, the 24th quadrennial world event, will take place from 8th September to the 10th September 2020 in Aarhus, Denmark.

The Rehabilitation International World Congress 2020, will focus on MOVING SOCIETIES: People in rehabilitation, their networks, professionals involved in rehabilitation services and not least politicians on all levels separately as well as in corporation may be “moving societies”. Over the past decades understanding of the term “rehabilitation” has proven to be a unifying concept, which includes a vast number of stakeholders, communities, professionals and sectors. The main purpose of habilitation and rehabilitation services is to empower each individual and create surrounding conditions that lead to participation for all and thus move societies in the widest understanding.

We wish to build and support networks in order to cooperate on activities which can inspire the rehabilitation agenda towards 2020. And we see the 24th RI World Congress 2020 to be the engine for new plans and visions.

Welcome message from Ms. Zhang Haidi, President of Rehabilitation International for the RI World Congress 2020
