Welcome to the IPPA website

IPPA is an "umbrella" organisation, established in 1976, with a remit to bring together interested groups and individuals from around the world to increase knowledge of the diseases of the embryo, fetus, neonate and child and promote its application to the health needs of all countries.

The main means by which it pursues these goals are by facilitating contacts between paediatric pathologists; organising conferences and teaching programmes; and by encouraging publication in the fields of developmental, paediatric (also spelt: pediatric) and perinatal pathology.

Membership is drawn indirectly from Affiliated Societies (PPSSPPSLAPPEANZPPG and JSPP) and directly from individuals working in regions not covered by Affilliated Societies.
