The International Pediatric Association (IPA) exists to create a world where all children, regardless of age, location or family situation can live healthy lives. For over 100 years, IPA has been the only global body representing the professional societies of pediatricians. IPA connects pediatricians from all over the world to lead improvements in child and adolescent health and rights. Since its foundation in 1910 IPA has become a globally respected voice in the international health community. IPA advocates globally, nationally, and locally for high quality, evidence-based and child-centered pediatric care. IPA is a respected partner of WHO and UNICEF and provides global leadership on emerging child health issues through their work with leading global health players. IPA represents pediatricians from over 140 countries in over 150 member societies, enabling them to work together to improve the physical, mental and social health and wellbeing of all children, from birth through adolescence.
The IPA 2019 Congress will address progress within the context of the sustainable development goals for child health. In alignment with the congress theme “Partnerships for Children” it will advance the IPA Mission that “Pediatricians, working with other partners, will be leaders in promoting physical, mental and social health for all children, and in realizing the highest standards of health for newborns, children and adolescents in all countries of the world. The IPA will work with professional associations and all others willing to add their strengths to advocacy, education and programming on behalf of children.”
The IPA 2019 Congress will deliver an outstanding scientific program, meaningful networking opportunities and memorable cultural experiences to upwards 4000 delegates from 120+ countries.
