The World Association for Infant Mental Health (WAIMH) is offering you a chance to help delegates from developing countries a chance to participate in the 17th World Congress in Brisbane, 7th to 11th June 2020.
The World Association for Infant Mental Health has made it its goal to be truly multi-national and culturally diverse. The majority of infants live in developing countries, and clinicians and researchers serving their needs have less resources for sharing the current knowledge and skills of infant mental health with colleagues from other countries. The current Sponsor a Delegate Programme aims at providing more colleagues from developing countries a chance to participate in the World Congress.
Delegates from Low Income (LIC), Lower-Middle (LMC) and Upper-Middle Income (UMC) countries can be sponsored by High Income Country peers - by individual infant mental health professionals, by Affiliate Associations of WAIMH or by companies. Sponsored delegates will have the opportunity to participate in the Congress, to learn about new scientific and clinical practice on infant mental health, to share their own knowledge and to meet colleagues working internationally in the field.
