Adopt a Delegate Program
Information for Congress Participants
The 23rd World Congress of the International Association for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Professions (IACAPAP 2018) is proud to introduce the ‘Adopt a Delegate’ initiative, giving prospective delegates from a developed world setting the opportunity to adopt or part finance the registration and accommodation costs of a peer from Lower-middle-income countries. Delegates can support other delegates by donating a preferred amount (minimum of 50 EUR) during their own online registration process. To encourage co-ownership of the project, adopted / sponsored delegates will carry financial responsibility for return travel to the Congress, while the donated money will be used to help offset costs for registration and/or accommodation.
IACAPAP 2018 recognizes that colleagues from emerging countries are lacking enough financial support to attend meetings outside their country. With this initiative IACAPAP 2018 hopes to provide additional opportunities for those researchers and practitioners to attend IACAPAP 2018, exchange information and set up a network with researchers and practitioners from all over the world attempting to help the sponsored delegate’s research both now and in the future.
With the world struggling with inequality, IACAPAP feels strongly our community shall assist in bridging the gaps between the environments. We hope that many delegates will participate as ‘sponsors’ and would like to thank everyone for their consideration and support. Recognition of ‘sponsors’ is to be assured via congress website and printed program brochure.
