The Board and the GA of the Belgian Academy of Paediatrics in 2020 resolutely opted for working through Task Forces for three reasons:
1. In order to be less dependent on changes in Board members and Presidents,
2. To offer more continuity to long-term projects and
3. To distribute the tasks among a larger group of volunteers,
With each Board Member being the inspirer of one (or more) Task Forces.
Various paediatricians from different associations and universities were recruited for their interest and/or expertise in the field in order to meet the set objectives of various strategic, scientific, financial and educational Task Forces.
Every two years, the new president and board and GA members will review the achieved goals and prioritize future objectives.
