Two-day IPOPI Regional Asian PID Meeting
IPOPI had the great pleasure of welcoming delegates from 19 countries from the Asia-Pacific region to the virtual IPOPI 3rd Regional Asian PID Meeting, held on September 18-19, 2020. During this well attended online meeting the participants learned from both international and regional primary immunodeficiencies (PID) experts on the latest developments in Asia.
The meeting featured many key speakers, explored topics such as PID diagnosis and care priorities in Japan, SEAPID and APSID updates, transition care and much more. The participants also learned from a discussion on Complex regional clinical care cases, as well as an interactive workshop organised for patient representatives in the region.
The meeting was initially scheduled to take place in Kyoto, Japan, in September 2020, back to back with the JSA/WAO/APAPARI 2020 Congress. After careful consideration of the ongoing spread of COVID-19 worldwide, and in order to ensure the safety of all participants, IPOPI decided to move this meeting online, with a shortened programme.
The report and the videos of the meeting will soon be available here.
