Event Overview
Welcome message:

World Congresses of Perinatal Medicine have remarkable past and I sincerely believe brilliant future. Particularly after 13th World Congress in October in Belgrade.


Extraordinary progress has been made in perinatal care during the last half century, something for which we can all rejoice and be proud. But there is still much to do.

At the very beginning of the 21st century, it is clear that the developments of the last century will fundamentally change many aspects of today's world. Modern communications technologies are changing the societal and economic structures, and our knowledge is growing at a speed that would have been unthinkable only a few years ago.


Ideas that provoke thinking, ideas that may be able to even trigger changes, think on is an expression of our conviction that we as organizers carry an obligation to think about the ideas and concepts that could take our WAPM further.


Pregnancy, childbirth and being a newborn are not diseases – they are special periods in human life when the risk of death or disability can be very high. This must be understood clearly by all: from medical, nursing and mid-wifery schools, from research funding bodies to industry and governments. Not understanding or knowing well the normal can lead to abuse of technology and iatrogenic complications.


Obviously, global problems can be solved by global efforts. Even a modest personal contribution to this global tragedy will be our moral duty.


This will help to promote the idea that today’s men and women are able to find mutual support, understanding and encouragement in diversity as the best way to grow as people in a more equitable and supportive society, where no one is excluded.


Indeed, we represent the best the World has to offer in perinatal medicine. Let us work together to make the World of perinatal medicine a better place.
