Task forces

Every two years, the priority objectives are proposed by the Board of the Academy of Paediatrics and approved at the General Assembly. Various experts are gathered in different Task Forces to set specific goals and time-lines. When new challenges arise and urgent input is needed, an additional objective is added to an existing Task Force, or an ad-hoc Task Force is created within one of the different sub-areas: Strategic, Scientific, Financial, Education and Society.
