Registration Fees


Bogotá, Colombia,  November 14th to 17th, 2018

Workshop (November 14-15): Kangaroo Mother Care as an evidence-based intervention: how to overcome resistance for its integration into routine care for low birth weight and preterm infants at country level.

Congress (November 16-17): Kangaroo Mother Care, the best neuro-protective strategy for preterm and LBW infants from birth to one year corrected age.

Participants are asked to pay a small registration fee, as indicated in the table below. While we have tried to maintain the registration fee affordable to all participants, there are still colleagues unable to afford this fee.  We ask our colleagues for your solidarity at the time of registration: if you can donate an additional registration (courtesy), you will make it possible for a colleague from a low-income country to participate in the event.  

Do this by the "Registration and payment" button below the table.

In the same spirit, we ask institutions and organizations from developed countries, such as hospitals or neonatal units that have implemented the Kangaroo Mother Care Method, to present a similar gesture of solidarity with fellow professionals running kangaroo programs in low and middle-income countries. We want to ensure that KMC professionals from all corners of the world are represented at the meeting, and financially able to attend to share their individual successes, challenges and points of view on the Kangaroo Mother Care Method.

If you have the means to sponsor travel expenses, accommodation or both, from one or two colleagues from around the world, click on the "Sponsorship" button, you will be directed to the donation site.

We all learn from the experiences of all stakeholders and we are confident the Conference will benefit from the value of varied perspectives in both our workshops and our congress sessions.
