14th Annual Meeting 13 – 17 October 2020 Singapore and Malaysia

From the 13th of October till the 17th of October 2020 the 14th Annual Meeting of the WAEH was going to take place in Singapore and Malaysia. Looking at the current COVID-19 situation however, the board of the WAEH has decided to make this meeting into a virtual meeting. We will organize a range of 6 webinars of 90 minutes around the themes. For each of the webinars and themes we are inviting our own members to share their knowledge. 

The information on this page will be updated soon.

During the annual meetings members have the opportunity to collaborate and exchange information and knowledge about all kinds of topics. Good examples of this include improving the efficiency in the service given to patients and continuous development of patient pathways.

Since the establishment of the WAEH in 2007 in Rotterdam, the WAEH has had the opportunity to visit eyehospitals in Rotterdam and Leuven (2007), Singapore, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur (annual meeting 2008), Sweden, Finland and Estonia (annual meeting 2009), Melbourne and Jakarta (annual meeting 2010), in London and Leuven (annual meeting 2011), Seoul and Bangkok (2012), Mexico (2013), India and Dubai (2014), Singapore (2015), Rotterdam (2016), the 11thannual meeting was hosted by the Tianjin Medical University Eye Hospital in China (2017), the 12th by the Kellogg Eye Center from Ann Arbor, USA and the 13th annual meeting in London (2019). In 2020 we will go to Singapore and Malaysia (October 2020)!
