2022 FIAPAC Conference

8 - 10 September 2022
Riga, Latvia
Theme: Fertility control into the hands of women
More information here.

Statement regarding the Conference in Riga and the situation in Ukraine

We understand there have been some concerns expressed about international travel due to the conflict in Ukraine. The FIAPAC board has made a full consideration of this and given that Latvia has no border with Ukraine and the huge distance from Riga to Ukraine (over 1000 kms away), we are still be reassured that the in person conference  should go ahead.

The FIAPAC board feel that it is important to show solidarity with our members and friends in Europe and confidence in their future stability.

Obviously, we will keep the situation under review, and develop a “plan B” in case of adverse developments, but for now we urge you  to support us - and particularly our Latvian colleagues -  by registering for the conference as soon as possible, and by promoting the event to others.

We are sure you will find lots to interest you in the programme. While the COVID pandemic has posed many challenges it has also allowed  us to pilot new telemedical interventions on a scale we could never have imagined. We will have masses to discuss in Riga and, on behalf of the Committee, we are looking forward to seeing you there.

Survey on Rhesus testing and Anti-D immunoglobin treatment

The pandemic has had an impact on access to first-trimester abortion care, sometimes improving it and sometimes restricting it, prompting further efforts to facilitate access and streamline the process. In this context and given the recent literature on Anti-D Rhesus prophylaxis recommendations, we are conducting a survey to better understand current local practices on Rhesus testing and Anti-D immunoglobin treatment, as well as underlying considerations.

The questionnaire is anonymous and only takes about 5 minutes.
Please note that you will be invited to quickly register before starting, for confidentiality reasons and to ensure each participation is unique.
We thank you for taking the time and providing your honest responses for best outcomes. We look forward to sharing with you the results as soon as they become available.

This survey will remain accessible online till 20 May.
Please feel free to forward this email to other colleagues in the field.
Go to the survey here.

We are grateful for the support of NORDIC PHARMA.
