Dear colleagues, dear friends,

We are pleased to inform you that the first version of the preliminary program of the 2nd Congress of the International Association of Preventive Pediatrics – IAPP, which will be held together with the 24th Autumn Meeting of the Pediatric Association of Republic of Srpska, 5 – 7 November 2021, is available on the Association’s website

In cooperation with the congress Organizing and Scientific Committee, coordinators of scientific symposiums and sessions and over 40 invited lecturers, top authorities from all countries from the region, an ambitious scientific program was prepared on the main challenges of prevention in pediatrics and child medicine as a whole.

As you know, Congress will be organized as a combined HYBRID event. Congress will be held live in Hotel TERMAG, Jahorina, and ONLINE, for all other interested colleagues from Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina (Republika Srpska & BiH Federation), all other countries from the region, as well as for colleagues from Europe and overseas.

We believe that the combined ONLINE HYBRID format would enable us to achieve all main goals of the Congress and continuous education in general, factoring in the effects of the COVID-19 pandemics epidemiological crisis, in Serbia and the SEE region, as well as around the world, which is gradually being put under control.

The strategic direction of the International Association for Preventive Pediatrics – IAPP, applied in practice for the first time this year, is, among others, working in partnership with national associations of former Yugoslavia and Southeast Europe.

This might prove to be the most appropriate manner for continuous systematic dissemination & exchange of knowledge/experiences related to similar problems we are dealing with, constantly improving our daily practice, for the benefit of our little patients.

International Association of Preventive Pediatric – IAPP applies an innovative and integral approach to the key topics of the children’s health in all educational and other activities it organizes. 

In this regard, clinicians and physicians dealing with fundamental biomedical disciplines, as well as other professionals engaged in prevention, diagnostics, treatment, and care of children are engaged as a team and in accordance with their competencies. 

Equally, associations of patients, families, parents, athletes, and other users of the health care services as well as children and adolescents who live or have lived with specific health problems or conditions, with their authentic testimonials and recommendations for others in similar situations, have an important and active role in our events.

Along with the preliminary program, on the website of the 2nd IAPP Congress and the Pediatric Association of Republika Srpska – PARS you can find the information related to registration and abstract submission.

We are positive that you share our belief in the innovative concept, professional quality, and new organizational potentials of the 2nd IAPP Congress and the PARS Congress and are looking forward to future cooperation.

We will keep you updated on the latest developments regarding Congress via our regular Information Campaigns..
