Dear participants,

In view of the current situation, the organising committee is reviewing the dates of organising 24th World Congress of the IACAPAP, currently being scheduled on 20 – 23 July 2020.

Please be rest assured that the health and safety of our participants are of our utmost priority. We are monitoring updates from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Singapore’s Ministry of Health, and are assessing the situation to determine if adjustments are necessary in relation to the Congress.
