The 10th International Congress of Tropical Paediatrics (ICTP) is expected to attract 3,000 delegates from across the world.
The event is Congrex’s first in Kenya.
The International Society of Tropical Paediatrics (ISTP) strives to improve the health of children throughout the tropics. The society is researching ways to attain a better future for children and provides families with health information, as well as prevention and treatment of well-known diseases in tropical areas in the world.
By building networks, connections and strong relationships, the society is on its way to rid the world of polio. The ISTP has global partnerships with the World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the International Paediatric Association (IPA) and national governments.
Professor F. Were, president of ICTP 2014, said: "I am happy to be working with Congrex for the planning and execution of the International Congress on Tropical Paediatrics 2014. I am sure that working with an international professional conference organiser with the experience and reputation of Congrex will be of great support to our event as we proudly look forward to the ICTP committee’s first visit to Kenya."
Jarno de Boer, managing director of Congrex Holland, said: "At Congrex we are happy to be supporting this important congress, which has such direct effect on the health of millions of children. We are also looking forward to organising an event in Kenya for the first time."
