Mission and objectives

The Finnish Paediatric Society (FPS) is committed to advance the health of children and youth by promoting excellence in paediatric care, continuous medical education, research and support of its membership.

In 2019, we adopted a strategic framework that will focus our activities on four key priority areas: 1) arranging versatile educational programs for general practitioners, specializing physicians and specialists; 2) promoting improvements to public policy that affects health and welfare of children and youth; 3) participating in social discussions and generating position statements concerning paediatric mental and physical integrity; 4) and endorsing national as well as international paediatric networking. The FPS is also supporting the versatile activities of its subdivisions and committees.
