EACD Europe 2021

33rd EACD Annual Meeting, May and June 2021, virtually

People with childhood-onset disabilities and their families are living in challenging times. COVID-19 has hit the European society hard and will keep its health care and economy for a long time in a stranglehold. In the 33rd EACD Annual Meeting local and European stakeholders discuss about how to keep health service for people with childhood-onset disabilities affordable with acceptable quality and to place the most urgent challenges on the European agenda.

Under the meeting theme "Childhood Disability in a Changing World"’, the Meeting will look back on the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19 on the area of childhood disability as well as look forward to the newest trends in rehabilitation and care and the latest development in technology and innovation.
