The South African Society of Physiotherapy (SASP)

The SASP is a voluntary professional membership organisation committed to equal opportunities and inclusivity, and striving to support the demographic profile of South Africa in terms of race and gender.

The SASP is Non-Profit Organisation, and part of our mission is to assist Government with the social and development needs of the country (SARS, 2014).

The SASP is also a Public Benefit Organisation. We therefore strive to use our funds responsibly and solely for their stated objectives, without any personal gain being enjoyed by any person including the founders and the fiduciaries (SARS, 2014).

The Vision of the SASP

The SASP is committed to being a dynamic, professional and innovative organisation, effectively representing its members and playing a pro-active role in the formulation and implementation of health care policy in South Africa.
