World Congress of Neurology 2019

Sunday, October 27, 2019 to Thursday, October 31, 2019
5 Days, Event Starts after 41 Days
Location : Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai
Price : Not specified
Event Type : Conference

The World Federation of Neurology was formed in Brussels in 1957, as an association of national neurological societies. Today WFN represents 120 professional national societies in all regions of the world, and each society registers its own individual member neurologists with us. The delegates, one from each national society, elect the trustees and officers.

The mission of the WFN, as a UK registered charity, is to foster quality neurology and brain health worldwide, a goal we seek to achieve by promoting global neurological education and training, with the emphasis placed firmly on under-resourced parts of the world.

The WFN holds biennial world congresses, which rotate throughout the regions (Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe) of the world. The congress consists of scientific sessions, teaching courses as well as structural and business meetings. The next congress following Chile (2015) will be in Kyoto, Japan 2017.

Education, improvement of neurologic sciences and knowledge are the main aims of the WFN. For this reason several programs such as Junior travelling grants, departmental visits, international courses, WFN -teaching centers, grants to fund local projects, and a joint CME program with the American Academy of Neurology are currently provided.

The American Academy of Neurology, along with its publisher, Wolters Kluwer, generously donate print issues of and online access to Continuum: Lifelong Learning in Neurology for neurology education in countries with limited resources. Through this collaboration, global neurology teams can learn about the latest treatments and techniques and enhance the management of patients with neurologic disease. More than 40 countries currently participate in this collaboration, and eligibility is based on country income.

The WFN encourages the empowerment of local and regional activities through cooperation with the six regional Neurological associations: the American Academy of Neurology (AAN), the European Academy of Neurology (EAN), the Asian Oceanian Association of Neurology (AOAN), the Pan American Federation of Neurological Societies (PAFNS), the Pan Arab Union of Neurological Societies (PAUNS) and the newly founded African Academy of Neurology (AFAN).

Brain health is the main goal of all the WFN activities and in order to achieve this, the WFN coordinates the World Brain Alliance (WBA) which includes the World Psychiatric Association (WPA), the World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies (WFNS), the World Federation of NeuroRehabilitation (WFNR), the International Child Neurology Association (ICNA), the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) and the WHO. Working together is crucial to achieve our intertwined goals.

The development of neurology has created several specialist societies, such as the World Stroke Organization, the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society, the International League Against Epilepsy, MS International, Alzheimer's Disease International, the International Headache Society, and the Peripheral Nerve Society among others. The WFN is committed and delighted in cooperating with them all.

The WFN has led in the development of the new WHO ICD 11, and is actively contributing to the second edition of the WHO Neurology Atlas. The WFN is an active partner in the campaign to control and manage the neurological aspects of NCD through close collaboration with the WHO.

The WFN has several committees which are dedicated to assisting the WFN with specific tasks such as education, research groups, membership, publications, and finance and congress organization. These committees are created from members from all parts of the world and they provide crucial help to the WFN in order to serve its needs and activities.
