In view of the current situation, the 24th World Congress of the IACAPAP in Singapore will be postponed. The exact dates will be announced as soon as possible.

Our top priority is to ensure the safety and well-being of our delegates, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors, participants as well as our staff. The organising committee has been working closely with the local authorities including Singapore’s Ministry of Health (MOH), Institute of Mental Health (organising hospital), Singapore EXPO Convention & Exhibition Centre (congress venue) and several other congress venues to ensure that proper mitigations are in place with appropriate infection control measures for the safety of our participants.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely and stay guided by local authorities such as MOH regarding updates or enhanced measures. Please subscribe to the IACAPAP mailing list at or visit our website for the most up-to-date information related to the Congress.

Should you require any further information or assistance, please do not hesitate to email us at [email protected].

The official website for the latest updates and measures from MOH can be accessed at

Thank you for your support!
