19th European Meting International Association for adolescent Health


The International Association for Adolescent Health - IAAH - entrusted Portugal with the organization of its 19th European Congress in June 2015.

This is the third time IAAH comes to Lisbon after the meetings of 1996 (4th European Congress) and 2005 (8th World Congress in 2005) that were a recognized success.

The Local Organizing Committee will work hard, under the guidance of the IAAH, to put together a very interesting scientific program that will include conferences, symposia and workshops lead by recognized experts in the field of adolescent health.

We have chosen Training in Adolescent Health: Moving Forward as the main topic, as we believe that pre and post-graduate training is crucial to move Adolescent Health ahead.

Youth medical students’ participation will add their perspective on essential skills and tools that should be made available for all medical students across Europe.

On the 24th of June there will be pre-congress courses on Obesity, Skin conditions, ADHD and Communication.
Lisbon is a gorgeous place. We hope you will find time to discover the charms of this town and enjoy the hospitality of the Portuguese people.

We invite you to join us and submit till December 31st your proposals for symposiums and workshops. Priority will be given for those focusing on areas linked to the meeting main theme, such as Pre and Post-graduation curricula and Continuous Education and Educational tools; Training in Sexual Health, Chronic Conditions, Mental Health.

Looking forward to seeing you next summer in Lisbon!
