Message from the President

Dear Colleagues and Friends; 

It is an honor and pleasure for me to welcome you to the World Association of Perinatal Medicine.

WAPM is doing its best to serve the society at the level of scientific research, publication, recommendations, guidelines, and postgraduate training as courses, webinars, and congresses and tries to establish the standards in the field of perinatal medicine, such as mainly obstetrics, neonatology and perinatal genetics.

Perinatal Medicine

With the Covid-19 outbreak, our activity has been not interrupted with online activiyy and is now active again as a hybrid format in the era of online and virtual communications through new technologies.

In the meantime, there have been several clinical practice guidelines published.

Also, we have the WSPM “World School of Perinatal Medicine” courses as online meetings. Although WAPM training activity will continue as online courses and webinars at the moment, there will be onsite and online events when possible.

If any perinatal/OB&GYN/Neonatal Society wishes to organize any scientific and training activity with the help and support of WAPM, it is more than welcome to have proposals.

We wish you all the best and healthy days to come.
