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 Global Child Health”, the meeting will take place from May 12-14, 2023 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. Christian Schmidt und Dr. Ralf Weigel
