IHN General Assembly 2017

The 2017 IHN General Assembly will be held on Sunday 18th June from 12.00-12.45 Central European Summer Time, following the ISBT Haemovigilance Working Party meeting at the ISBT regional congress in Copenhagen.

The ISBT Working Party meeting will be held from 8.30-12 noon.  For those of you attending the ISBT congress, we hope you can attend the Working Party session (which includes a short report from IHN) and stay for the IHN business meeting.  If you are not coming to Copenhagen, we hope to have webinar facilities.  More information and the agenda will be distributed shortly.

IHN Seminar activities
As you know, we have moved to an alternate year IHN seminar.  We are planning for the 2018 IHN Seminar and will provide more information soon.

In line with our strategic plan, during 2017, IHN is strengthening its collaboration and engagement with national haemovigilance systems by participating in national meetings in a number of countries.  In March, IHN was invited by the Food and Drug Authority of Saudi Arabia to contribute to a haemovigilance seminar in Riyadh.

IHN will also be participating in the following upcoming conferences:

- Taiwan Society of Blood Transfusion & Taiwan Blood Services Foundation 2017. Mid-Annual International Symposium on Transfusion Safety and Hemovigilance” in Taichung, Taiwan from May 18-21, 2017.

- Korean Society of Blood Transfusion 6th Annual Congress, in Daegu, Korea from June 2-3, 2017.

- Mexican Association of Transfusion Medicine (AMMTAC) XV National Congress in Guadalajara, Mexico from 20-23 September, 2017.

We hope to see some of you at these conferences.

IHN Website
A new IHN website is being prepared.  We will soon be contacting you to provide some information on your haemovigilance system for the website, and thank you in advance for your participation.

Kind regards,
Erica Wood
President IHN
