IPIC 5th Edition Recap

The 5th Edition of the International Primary Immunodeficiencies Congress (IPIC) was held in beautiful Vilamoura, Portugal, in April this year. Despite facing the many challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as recent unrest in Ukraine, a face-to-face congress was made possible. A truly welcome and amazing feat by the organising committee.

IPIC5th Edition saw the joining together of 600 delegates interested in learning more about diagnosis and clinical care of primary immunodeficiencies (PIDs). Over 130 posters for presentation were approved with most presented by young scientists and physicians with an interest in PID.

The program celebrated the inspiring work that has been carried out by the global PID community however the event also highlighted the many challenges which still need to be addressed. The strength and continued success of IPIC is due to the well-balanced scientific program that is clinically orientated with input from key PID stakeholders namely doctors, scientists, patients and nurses – designed to complement other existing international congresses and scientific meetings.

For the first time in IPIC history, various scientific programme content was made available on Video on Demand (VOD). If you registered and attended IPIC5th Edition you can access the video on demand via https://ipic5app.com/  or, alternatively, you can register to have access to the IPIC5th Edition VOD until the end of July 2022.

Planning is underway for IPIC 2023 in Rotterdam!  We cannot wait to see you there.
