International Podiatry Day will be celebrated every year on the 8 of October. This special day provides the worldwide podiatry community an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the good work that is done in providing foot and ankle care by podiatrists.
On 8 October 2018 for the first time a large-scope social media campaign was launched. This yearly campaign wants to increase the awareness of the importance of foot health among the general public and other health professionals. This day replaces the world foot health awareness month.
The March 2019, IPD participated at the European Association Awards which recognises excellence and exceptional quality delivered by associations across Europe. Our very own International Podiatry Day Campaign was a finalist in the category Best Communications Campaign. Thanks to everyone that contributed to this day we are very proud to announce that we just received the Bronze Award !
On 8 October 2019 the second digital awareness campaign was launched with the support of member associations and partners. All podiatrists from the FIP-IFP member associations participated at this great day, which was a great success! Please read the Social Media Impact report here and get impressed by the numbers.
