The International Patient Organisation for Primary Immunodeficiencies (IPOPI) welcomed over 600 participants interested in learning more about diagnosis and clinical care of primary immunodeficiencies (PIDs) at its third International Primary Immunodeficiencies Congress (IPIC2017), in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
IPIC2017 was endorsed by 34 medical and professional societies and granted 13 Continuing Medical Education credits by the European Union of Medical Experts.
Over 170 posters for presentation were submitted for the congress many of which by young physicians with an interest in PID. The authors of the three best posters were distinguished with a monetary grant and given the opportunity to present in a dedicated congress session.
Jose Drabwell, IPOPI President, stated that ‘IPOPI is very proud of how well the congress is being received in the Middle East and could not have hoped for a better first edition outside Europe’.
