The Asian Paralympic Committee (acronym: APC) is an organization based in United Arab Emirates. It has 44 National Paralympic Committees of the Asian continent as members. It organizes the Asian Para Games and is affiliated to the International Paralympic Committee.
The Asian Paralympic Committee was formed on 30 October 2002 in Busan, South Korea as the Asian Paralympic Council, following a motion presented by NPC Malaysia at the 1999 IPC General Assembly. It consisted originally of three sub-regions which are East Asia, South Asia and South-East Asia. In April 2004, in order to align with the structure followed by the International Olympic Committee, the International Paralympic Committee decided that the Central Asia and West Asia sub-regions fall under the Council’s responsibility. An agreement was signed on 16 May 2004 to merge the Asian Paralympic Council and the FESPIC Federation. The organisation was only known by its present name by 28 November 2006 when the merger came into effect.
