Welcome

On behalf of the Board of the International Association of Parkinsonism and Related Disorders, it is our pleasure to invite all of you to join us during the upcoming biennial XXII World Congress on Parkinson’s Disease and Related Disorders, November 12-15, 2017 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam!

The motto of this Congress is “Two Centuries of Movement Disorders: Transformation of Clinical Care”. True to the overarching mission of our organization, we strive to create a milieu for the free exchange of knowledge, to bridge the divide between basic science and clinical care, and to forge the future by coalescing an understanding of the etiology and pathophysiology with treatment of the manifold motor and behavioral features of these disorders. It is our hope that this Congress facilitates the global sharing of therapeutic strategies to enhance the quality of life of patients’ worldwide suffering from movement disorders. This Congress aspires to reach this goal by bringing together a diverse, equi-gender, international faculty of dynamic scientists, seasoned clinicians, and dedicated allied health experts.

The Congress will include thought provoking plenary lectures, cutting edge scientific symposia, interactive forum discussions and practical workshops. Equally important, it will offer numerous slots for oral presentations of ongoing research and ‘hot topics.’

Vietnam, a newly discovered destination for the sophisticated tourist, is located on the eastern Indochina Peninsula and is about the size of Germany. Vietnam's diverse landscape includes hills and densely-forested mountains, the Mekong delta, and a 2,140 mile-long coastline, offering many beautiful sightseeing opportunities. Ho Chi Minh City, more popularly known as Saigon, is Vietnam’s largest city. It was once called the Pearl of South East Asia.  Finally, before or after the Congress, make your trip truly unforgettable by visiting Halong Bay, a breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the wonders of the world, with thousands of limestone karsts formed over 500 million years of exposure to different conditions and environments, and  its picturesque isles in a multitude of shapes and sizes.
