EAP Membership

We would like to invite you to become a member, but more importantly, to contribute to the success of the EAP vision.

Welcome Note from the President

It is an honor to have been elected to serve as President of the EAP. I have already started to work hard to achieve our shared goals and to promote the best possible care of children, as well as the profession of Paediatrics itself.

There is no doubt that we all want to improve children’s health, both in Europe and elsewhere in the world. To achieve this, we need to work together, supporting research for children, ensuring that we train doctors and other healthcare workers, and giving a clear voice to children and their parents. We must also engage those involved in setting health policy, ensuring priority is given to the care and support of this vulnerable group.

Our Vision

The European Academy of Paediatrics exists to promote the health of children and young people in Europe.

It aims to improve standards in training, service and research and to represent the professional interests of paediatricians in the EU.

It incorporates the section of paediatrics of the European Union of Medical Specialists and therefore has influence in the political arena to advocate for children and young people as well as for the profession.

EAP Statements

Off-label use of medicines in neonates, infants, children, and adolescents: a joint policy statement by the European Academy of Paediatrics and the European society for Developmental Perinatal and Pediatric Pharmacology

Mandatory vaccination: a joint statement of the Ethics and Vaccination working groups of the European Academy of Paediatrics
