Welcome address

We are delighted to invite you to our 41st Annual Meeting of the Society for Tropical Pediatrics and International Child Health.

Under the keynote theme “Teaching. Tomorrow. Together. – Learning and Teaching in the Context of Global Child Health”, the meeting will take place from May 12-14, 2022 in the Beethoven and UN city of Bonn. In addition to various workshops and submitted abstracts, you can expect exciting presentations from renowned speakers* as well as the chance to establish 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 meeting also gives ample space to present other current and relevant aspects of global child health.

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

We would like to make it possible for as many interested people as possible to participate 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 Chiar) 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. Peter Meißner, Dr. Christian Schmidt und Dr. Ralf Weigel

Social program



Instead of a second workshop, you will have the opportunity to get to know Bonn better on a guided city tour. The tour will end at the location where the Opening Ceremony takes place. Please let us know if you are interested in this city tour when registering for the conference. For people who are not members of the GTP, another city tour is offered on Saturday afternoon.  


We invite you to a get-together with snacks and drinks after the Opening Ceremony. Make new contacts, toast the reunion with colleagues and get into the conference mood.  



For those who are not members of the GTP, a guided city tour will be offered during the GTP general assembly. Please let us know your interest in this city tour when registering.  


We cordially invite you to spend the Saturday evening with a buffet, live music and dancing on the MS Poseidon. The ship will depart from bridge 13 after the general assembly at around 8pm. We will cruise the river Rhine towards Cologne and back towards Koblenz until around 1am. For all those who want to continue dancing after the end of the boat trip, the conference office will have further information ready. We will also try to make it possible to leave the ship earlier, around 10.30/11 pm.  


The conference organizers have created a list of hotels close to the conference venue of different prize categories. This list can be accessed here.
