It is my great pleasure, as President of the International Neonatology Association (INA), to welcome you to the 4th Conference in the city of Ghent, Belgium, on June 22 – 24, 2018.

INA was established to promote high quality standards of neonatal practice and care for the benefit of the global Neonatology. Among the purposes of the association are to collect and disseminate information on matters affecting neonatal practice and care and exchange such information with members and other bodies having similar purposes.
The excellent work done by Professor Avroy Fanaroff, Honorary President and founding President of the INA, and all of the members of the governing body has established a unique and attractive standard in education through the annual conference in Neonatology, where science and clinical practice join together.

Our worldwide Association promotes not only high quality of care for neonates and their families, but also to decrease health disparities and improve neonatal outcomes globally.
The 4th Conference will offer a unique opportunity to meet the key opinion leaders in Neonatology and interact with them about the most exciting topics.
It is also my pleasure to announce the creation of the “Professor Fanaroff Award”, that for the first time will be given to recognize the most promising young investigator at the INAConference.
We hope to meet you all at Ghent where the best clinical practice, research and teaching will join for a few days continuing building this passionate project of global Neonatology.
