Sponsor a Delegate
The World Association for Infant Mental Health (WAIMH) is offering you a chance to help delegates from low income countries to participate in the 14th WAIMH World Congress in Edinburgh 14th – 18th June 2014.
The World Association for Infant Mental Health has made it its goal to be truly multi-national and culturally diverse. The majority of infants live in developing countries, and clinicians and researchers serving their needs have less resources for sharing the current knowledge and skills of infant mental health with colleagues from other countries. The current Sponsor a Delegate Programme aims at providing more colleagues from developing countries, with the chance to participate in the World Congress.
Delegates from Low Income (LIC), Lower-Middle (LMC) and Upper-Middle Income (UMC) countries can be sponsored by High Income Country peers – by individual infant mental health professionals, by Affiliate Associations of WAIMH or by companies. Sponsored delegates will have the opportunity to participate in the Congress, to learn about new scientific and clinical practice on infant mental health, to share their own knowledge and to meet colleagues working internationally in the field.
How does it work?
Delegates of the Congress, WAIMH members, infant mental health professionals, Affiliate Associations of WAIMH, and other associations or organisations may donate money by international bank transfer or by credit/debit card (MasterCard, Visa, Visa Debit or Delta). Upon receipt of your Sponsorship Application you will be provided with the WAIMH Bank Account details for payment.
Delegates receiving sponsorship support are carefully selected by a subcommittee of the WAIMH 2014 Local Organising Committee. The subcommittee is appointed by the chairperson of the Local Organising Committee, Prof Jane Barlow. Applicants approved by the subcommittee will be allocated on a first received, first allocated basis.
