@UNICEF_EU: Vaccination saves 2 to 3 million children each year from deadly childhood diseases like measles, diarrhoea and pneumonia. COVID-19 caused an alarming decline in the number of children receiving life-saving vaccines around the world. It does not have to be that way! https://t.co/04Yf2Y2C14

Vaccinating not only protects yourself, but also protects those around you who are unable to be vaccinated. Be like @robrr2, Chairman of EBP and member of the @EbPexam examination committee, get vaccinated against #COVID19 if you are able to. #VaccinesWork https://t.co/UXlsxQcIeA

@antonioguterres: It's impossible not to feel heartbroken when we see so many people with no access to healthcare. This is absolutely intolerable. I'm determined to do all I can to mobilize the international community to make universal health coverage a reality by 2030.

Influenza & other infection diseases activity has decreased among children since the beginning of the #COVID19 crisis, due to social distancing. The #COVID19 vaccine will not be available to children before trials are ran on their age group. This work needs to be done in 2021.

#COVID19 is unlikely to become a childhood disease. Only a few children are developing symptoms and even if all adults are vaccinated, there is no reason why this should change.

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
