ASEAN Para Sports Federation (APSF)
ASEAN Para Sports Federation (APSF). APSF was created as a star catalyst in the new millennium, enhancing Asean solidarity & brotherhood amongst its members and the paralympic fraternity in the Southeast Asian region. APSF’s focus in the next decade is to persue equal opportunities in sports and in life for persons with a disability in the region. APSF shall position itself to be a strong and dynamic organisation in facing the challenges of the 21st Century.
History has it that during the 10th Paralympiad Malaysian Games in Kuala Lumpur May 2000, the 10 Southeast Asian Countries, represented by the various National Paralympic or Disabled Sports Organisations, met and with the Spirit of Asean Solidarity, unanimously endorsed the idea of establishing a Disabled Sports Federation at Asean level. Hence, the birth of the Asean Para Sports Federation (APSF) and its biennial Sports Championship named as the Asean Para Games.
