Legacy / Statement

Growing together in diversity for the benefit of all Europeans
Statement of WONCA Europe Conference 2017, Prague

Diversity has always been one of the most defining and intrinsic characteristics of the people of Europe. The tension between diversity and a desire for uniformity has been the source of many of Europe’s great achievements, but, when mishandled, has also played a part in some of its greatest failures.

Countries and regions can thrive when diversity is acknowledged and accepted, but as populations become increasingly varied, it is necessary for the political leadership to ensure that essential services, such as health care and education, are adapted, to meet the changing needs, and are delivered in a fair and accessible way.

Welcome Messages


Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure and honour for The Czech Society of General Practice to be a host organization for the 22nd WONCA Europe Conference, which will be held in Prague in the beginning of July 2017. WONCA Europe conferences have become the most influential events for general practitioners from Europe and elsewhere contributing to global awareness of the latest clinical primary care strategies and to the development of professional issues. We want to contribute to this tradition and even to push the quality and significance of the conference forward and to enhance the unique spirit of WONCA Europe.

‘United in Diversity’ is the official motto of the European Union. Having been already united in WONCA family we want to grow as a discipline in European diversity by learning from each other and exchanging experience and knowledge. This explains a theme of our Conference: “Growing together in Diversity”. It allows us to open all dimensions of the discipline.

We plan to prepare a balanced programme based on original abstracts, contributions suggested by leading international scientific networks, committees and groups recognised by WONCA. The conference will use state of the art technologies. Together with top key note speakers we want to reach this way the high quality scientific content of the upcoming conference.

You may know that during the last twenty years Prague, beautiful, easily accessible and affordable city has become a proven conference destination and general practice friendly place.

Make your calendar for Prague WONCA 2017!
