2nd PAFLAR Congress Welcome Message

Dear Friends,

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 2nd PAFLAR virtual congress which will be held between 29th of June and 1st of July 2022.

The Paediatric Society of the African League Against Rheumatism(PAFLAR) is a prestigious non-governmental organization established in September 2019 with a core mandate to promote a world where children with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases(RMDs) have the same and optimal chance to live, grow and develop like their other normal counterparts especially in Africa. We envision to achieve this through effective strategies and programs that impact on the well-being of African children with RMDs through advocacy and enactment of policies adapted to the specificity of the African continent.

The first PAFLAR congress provided our participants the opportunity to exchange experiences, share knowledge, and enhance networking.
We offer another exciting opportunity to learn, deliberate, and collaborate with one another. Our theme_ “Paediatric rheumatology in Africa: challenge, innovate and grow” addresses the current problems in the paediatric rheumatology domain in Africa and how to surmount them.
This congress promises to be extraordinary, phenomenal and outstanding.

On behalf of the PAFLAR Scientific Committee, I am pleased to invite you to register, submit abstracts, attend and participate in our 2nd PAFLAR Virtual Congress.

Stronger Together For a Better Future…
I am looking forward to meeting you all.

My warmest regard,
Dr Ayodele Faleye
Chair, PAFLAR Scientific Committee
