It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the International
Pediatric Association (IPA). The IPA is over 100 years old and is dedicated
to assist child health workers, pediatric associations and policy makers
improve the lives and health of children everywhere in the world.
The IPA Council of delegates and the Standing
Committee is made up of pediatric representatives from across the globe.
Working committees and technical groups are invested in nearly every aspect
of child well being working with and through national and regional pediatric
organizations. Examples include, work with member pediatric societies on
measles, rubella and polio eradication, the international initiative on
diarrhea/pneumonia and expanded high quality resuscitation for every baby.
The members of these groups and other IPA representatives also interact
regularly with leaders and policy makers whose decisions will affect
pediatric health locally, nationally, regionally and worldwide. The IPA is
the pediatric voice to the Partnership for Maternal, Neonatal and Child
Health, with the World Health Organization and UNICEF.
The IPA and our committee members welcome your interest and participation.
As you see problems and solutions for the world's children feel free to
Dr. William J. Keenan, M.D
