Chair & Co-Chair
Welcome to the home page of the ISTM Pediatrics Interest Group. This group is free to join with your ISTM membership and gives you the opportunity to collaborate with other ISTM members who are interested in this area.
There has been a steady increase in Children travelling internationally over time, children may go to remote areas on parents work assignments, or on pleasure trips which include high altitude destinations and water sport destinations, and very many will now visit developing countries. Informal surveys of ISTM members show that the majority want more pediatrics travel medicine information.
The council leading this group is currently constructed of Pediatricians from around the globe but we welcome all practitioners as we know that all travel practitioners, regardless of their primary specialty see children in their clinics. We hope all our interest group members will be involved in bringing discussion topics, or suggestions to direct us in projects that will make the ISTM, and this growing specialty even better.
We aim to demonstrate the importance of travel-related issues for children in our ‘not so small’ part of Travel medicine.
