The 9th Europaediatrics Congress took place in Dublin, Ireland from 13 – 15 June 2019 and was hosted by the Faculty of Paediatrics of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland. The congress is the highlight of the activities of the European Paediatric Association and the Union of National European Paediatric Societies and Associations (EPA-UNEPSA).
Over the three days, we welcomed delegates from more than 70 countries, presented over 70 hours of science, and published upwards of 900 abstracts. Dublin provided us with a fantastic setting for the Congress, and our heartfelt thanks go to the RCPI for their outstanding hospitality.
As we bid a fond farewell to Ireland we would like to thank you for being part of our community.
Furthermore, we hope to see you once more at the 10th Europaediatrics Congress next year in Croatia!
Taking place every 2 years, this flagship event has become a wonderful tradition of bringing together paediatricians and child health professionals from all around Europe and other continents.
The overall theme of the meeting was ‘Prevention and therapeutic innovations in the management of child health’. Our objective is to prevent disease and disability through primary, secondary and tertiary prevention; and where prevention is not possible to provide up-to-date evidence-based treatment and optimize the health and wellbeing of the child and family and in addition promote children’s rights to health, equity and social justice.The Congress was held in the iconic Convention Centre Dublin in the heart of the city, close to the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland founded in 1654 and the historic Trinity College founded in 1591 which are the home of many medical scholars and Nobel prize winners including Graves, Corrigan, Stokes, Colles and others.
