DEBRA International Congress 2017

24 - 26 November 2017

DEBRA New Zealand in association with DEBRA International is delighted to be hosting the DEBRA International Congress 2017 in Wellington, New Zealand from 24 - 26 November. 

EB (Epidermolysis Bullosa) is characterised by extremely fragile skin and recurrent blister formation, resulting from minor mechanical friction or trauma. Our vision is that all people living with the group of rare genetic skin conditions EB will have access to the best support and medical care. As well as aiming to promote understanding of this condition, DEBRA advocates for the development of effective treatments.

The annual DEBRA International Congress plays a crucial role in the push to find a cure for EB. We welcome representatives from many of the world's 50 DEBRA organisations, as well as clinicians and researchers working in the EB field. 

This is the first time the Congress has been held on this side of the world, presenting a rare regional opportunity for international networking. 

We understand the value of knowledge sharing among the small pool of health care professionals with expertise in EB. Clinicians from around the world will be sharing their experience with EB including Dermatologists, Dentists, Dieticians, Specialist EB Nurses and Podiatrists. Congress 2017 offers a significant learning opportunity and will give delegates a chance to meet peers from a variety of backgrounds.
