WOFAPS has been conducting its “World Congress” on a triennial basis since 2004. Previous events have been held in Washington D.C., Berlin, Delhi, Buenos Aires and Zagreb. This “Congress” has continued to grow in attendance with over 1000 attendees participating in 2016 at the Washington D.C. event. Our estimated attendance for the 2019 Congress is approximately 1000 individuals.
Sidra Medicine will be serving as a host for this first ever “World Congress” in the Middle East. The event promises to attract pediatric surgeons from around the region, interested in learning about international pediatric cases as well as supporting surgeons from around the world to experience the pediatric innovations that have occurred around the globe.
We anticipate an audience of attendees from over 100 countries that comprise WOFAPS.
The scientific program will focus on a variety of surgical specialties and will provide a unique opportunity for surgeons from South Asia, Africa, China and SE Asia to network with their colleagues from Middle East.
