Welcome to PAWS HEALTH Initiative

Created to raise the awareness of physiotherapy and its role in the prevention and management of noncommunicable diseases.

#Why we do it

It has to be done

Low awareness

There has clearly been only a limited penetration of the knowledge and awareness of physiotherapy and hence plenty of room for misconceptions, ignorant healthcare decision making and a comparatively inefficient healthcare system.


Given a growing burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in Nigeria, creating awareness and educating the public on the risk-factors, prevention and multi-disciplinary of this class of diseases is imperative.

Still not convinced? Here is another one:

Few Professionals

There are only 4,000 physiotherapists in a country of over 150million people. That’s 1 professional to 37,500 people.
