The Asian Para Games is a multi-sport event regulated by the Asian Paralympic Committee that held every four years after every Asian Games for athletes with physical disabilities.
Before the Asian Para Games were held, a gathering known as the FESPIC Games existed and was participated by athletes from the Asia Pacific region. The FESPIC Games was first held in 1975 in Oita, Japan with 18 participating nations. Eight more FESPIC Games were held until 2006
The Asian Para Games superseded the FESPIC Games, which was dissolved alongside the FESPIC Federation, the governing body of the games and the Asian Paralympic Council which was replaced by the Asian Paralympic Committee at the closing of the final FESPIC edition held November 2006 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The first Asian multi-sports event for athletes with a disability, the inaugural Asian Para Games was held in 2010 in Guangzhou, China after the formation of the Asian Paralympic Council. The 2nd edition was held in 2014 Incheon, South Korea.
