Given the current concerns re COVID-19 and the travel bans already in place in some areas the IGA board has taken the difficult decision, in line with the EWGGD, to postpone the 2020 biennial members meeting to 10-11 October 2020. The venue will still be in Leiden, Netherlands and the EWGGD congress will follow from 11-14 October.
Online registration for IGA member patient organisations will be open soon – more details to follow – but please continue to send us your country reports before 31 March 2020.
Our proposal is to have a zoom meeting on the weekend of the original biennial meeting (23/24 May) to hold the official biennial general meeting (business meeting).
Our thoughts are with all of you who are affected by the virus. Please do not hesitate to reach out if there is any way that our Gaucher community can support you and your patients during this difficult time.
