The 61st Annual European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology (ESPE) will take place 21-23 September in The Hague, Netherlands.
The theme that is chosen for the 61st ESPE Meeting is “Global Challenges in Paediatric Endocrinology”. All over the world we are faced with important challenges: carbon dioxide driven climate change, global but also local inequality with large differences in access to basic needs and medical care, and a recent pandemic. Climate change for instance calls for more sustainable medical care, also in the field of paediatric endocrinology, and also raises ethical questions. Another big challenge is the ever-rising prevalence of obesity, with low- and middle-income countries quickly catching up with high-income countries. Although considerable advances are made with respect to medical treatment these are not automatically available for large groups of affected individuals.
The registries will attend and host a booth with information materials and interactive demos.
