11th World Down Syndrome Congress
Down Syndrome International together with local hosts Down Syndrome South Africa take pride in hosting the next World Down Syndrome Congress for the first time on African soil, giving us the opportunity of learning and sharing experiences from across the globe. The aim of this congress is for all participants to gain experience on the latest developments and up to date knowledge and tools to improve the lives of people with Down syndrome.Down Syndrome South Africa is planning a dynamic programme that will cater for all - parents and family members of people with Down syndrome, people with Down syndrome, professionals including health, educational, and research practitioners. This exciting programme will ensure that all who participate will benefit. We strongly encourage participation and presentations from people with Down syndrome.
In following on from the 10th Conference held in 2009 in Dublin, we continue with a second interactive workshop for adults with Down syndrome. This event is called INDABA, which has been developed especially for adults with Down syndrome where their wishes and desires will be voiced and heard in this open forum.
