ICORD members and non-members are welcome to send their expression of interest to host future Annual ICORD Meetings to the secretariat, firstname.lastname@example.org.
ICORD arranges annual meetings on rare diseases and orphan drugs in different parts of the world together with local groups. The meetings provide a great opportunity to take part of and share the latest international updates in the field of rare diseases, to learn about the local/regional situation where the annual meeting is organised and to network with many different stakeholders, such as academia, patient groups, health care workers, health authorities and industry representatives.
The programmes of the annual meetings are put together by a committee representing different stakeholders from different regions of the world. The committee aims to create a programme that is of interest to both ICORD members coming from abroad and to the local participants. One important objective of the annual meetings is to create a platform for stakeholders to meet and exchange knowledge and best practices. ICORD will collaborate with Rare Disease International (RDI) to organise the future annual meetings. Read more about the collaboration here.
ICORD 2017 will take place 7-10 September in Beijing, China. More information is here. Planning for ICORD 2018 (autumn) is ongoing.
Summaries and presentations from the past annual ICORD meetings can be found in the menu under Past Events.
