ISPRM Anthem – 25th Anniversary celebrations 2024

🌍 ISPRM is approaching its 25th Anniversary. To honor this important milestone, ISPRM will launch at the ISPRM2024 Congress, in Sydney, the Official ISPRM Anthem.

An anthem is “a rousing or uplifting song identified with a particular group, body, or cause” and we would like the ISPRM anthem to have powerful words and phrases that uplift us and remind us of our purpose and goals, empowering us all to “continuously improve PRM practice and facilitate PRM input in international health organizations with the goal to contribute to optimal functioning and quality of life of people experiencing disability”.

Having received 4 amazing contributions, our challenge to you, dear ISPRM members, is to vote for your favorite Anthem online, by March 30th.
