Dear colleague

IAPO was officially created in 1995, in Argentina, with approximately 400 founding members. Initially, this organization was Latin American, but fifteen years later it has undergone such an expansion that it is no longer restricted to the boundaries of our American continents. It has more than 7,800 associates on five continents and is the largest existing pediatric otorhinolaryngologic society. A multidisciplinary society, its otorhinolaryngologists, pediatricians, pneumologists, immunologists, infectologists, speech therapists have a scientific interest in improving their knowledge in this area of subspecialty.
