We are privileged to announce the 1st Congress of Euraisan Social Pediatrics which will be held by our Society for Social Pediatrics at Istanbul, during 26th November - 2nd December, 2018.
The congress revolves around the theme of "Early childhood development, and interventions, besides feeding, and immunization".
One in every three children globally fail to reach their full physical, cognitive, psychological and/or socioemotional potential due to poverty, poor nutrition, insufficient care and stimulation.
Investments in maternal and child health have the highest benefits for communities. Enabling children to develop their full physical, cognitive, language and socioemotional potential, particularly during the first three years of life, has the highest rates of return across their life span, besides economic and social benefits for the community.
Evidence based interventions for improving women’s and children’s health include promoting breastfeeding, improving maternal and young child nutrition, responsive caregiving and providing nurturing care with stimulation in the first years of life, prevention and management of childhood illness and developmental problems, immunization, and promoting maternal mental health.
This congress reflects our goal to provide and discuss the latest scientific knowledge and current evidence based practices in early childhood development, contexts that challenge children’s development, maternal and infant nutrition, and immunization. This year, we will introduce a new course on pediatric sleep, addressing the importance of sleep, sleep problems confronting children, and sleep interventions, besides our traditional Child health surveillance, Immunization, and Pediatric epidemiology courses held in our previous congresses. The congress also presents distinguished international keynote speakers.
We are happy to invite and welcome professionals from multiple disciplines who work with children, and families. We hope you will enjoy the topics, feel fulfilled by your experience at the congress and use your experiences in your future studies.
