Welcome address

We would like to cordially invite you to our 41st Annual Meeting of the Society for Tropical Paediatrics and International Child Health.

Under the guiding theme “Teaching. Tomorrow. Together. — Learning and Teaching in the Context of Global Child Health”, the meeting will take place from 12 to 14 May 2023 in the Beethoven and UN city of Bonn. In addition to various workshops and submitted abstracts, you can expect exciting keynote speeches from renowned speakers as well as the chance to make and refresh personal contacts.

Aspects of teaching and learning related to international child health will be presented in medical as well as socio-cultural thematic complexes in a global as well as local context. As usual, however, the annual conference also gives enough space to present other current and relevant aspects of global child health.

Together with you, we would also like to celebrate and cordially invite you to our social evening on 13 May 2023. We will sail on the Rhine through the night, want to eat and dance to live music.

We would like to make it possible for as many interested people as possible to attend and offer reduced prices for students and health professionals as well as childcare during the conference.

We are very much looking forward to your coming and to lively discussions.

Dr Andreas Schultz (Conference President) with Dr Claudia von Both, Dr Noa Freudenthal, Dr Andreas Hansmann, Andrea Jütte, Dr Sarah Kotsias-Konopelska, Dr Carsten Krüger, Eva Kuhn, Dr Hans-Jörg Lang, Dr Christian Schmidt and Dr Ralf Weigel

General Information

Instead of a second workshop, we offer the opportunity to get to know Bonn better on a guided city tour. The city tour will then end at the location of the conference kick-off.

Following the conference kick-off, we invite you to a get-together with snacks and drinks. Make new contacts, toast the reunion with colleagues and get into the conference mood.

We cordially invite you to spend Saturday evening with a buffet and live music and dancing on the MS Poseidon. The ship will depart from bridge 13 after the MV at around 8 p.m. and will sail the Rhine towards Cologne and back towards Koblenz until around 1 a.m.. For all those who want to continue dancing after the end of the cruise, the conference office has further tips and information ready. 

We also try to make it possible to leave the ship for the first time around 10.30/23 pm.
