Welcome message

Dear Colleagues,

Association of general practice/family medicine of South-East Europe (AGP/FM SEE) and the National association of general practitioners in Bulgaria (NAGPB) are pleased to invite you to the Fourth Congress of AGP/FM SEE which will be held on 22-25 November 2018 Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

The theme of the Congress is "General/Family medicine - a challenge that worths!".

Nowadays we live in a world of aging population. There is effective control of infectious diseases with serious consequences and successful treatment of surgical and other medical conditions as a consequence of the development of medical science and practice resulting in increase in life expectancy. But this also provides enough “disease-free” space to be colonized with “time resistant species” of diseases- chronic diseases and the necessary time for their expression and effects on quality of life.

The surrounding environment of the modern society gave birth to new threats for human health and wellbeing regardless of age. All these are not easy to deal with and it makes general practice/family medicine a real challenge… but a challenge that worths!

We are looking forward to seeing you in Plovdiv!

Lyubomir Kirov
President of Association of GPs in Bulgaria
