Sponsor a delegate application now open – Application deadline, Monday 3 April 2023

The World Association for Infant Mental Health has made it its goal to be truly multi-national and culturally diverse. The majority of infants live in developing countries, and clinicians and researchers serving their needs have less resources for sharing the current knowledge and skills of infant mental health with colleagues from other countries. The current Sponsor a Delegate Programme aims at providing more colleagues from developing countries a chance to participate in the World Congress.

Delegates from Low Income (LIC) and Lower-Middle Income (LMIC) countries can be sponsored by High Income Country peers – by individual infant mental health professionals, by Affiliate Associations of WAIMH or by companies. Sponsored delegates will have the opportunity to participate in the Congress, to learn about new scientific and clinical practice on infant mental health, to share their own knowledge and to meet colleagues working internationally in the field.


Delegates resident in LIC and LMIC countries according to the World Bank classification, as well in areas in major crises (including Turkey), who have had an abstract accepted for the Congress can apply for sponsorship by filling in the application form.

Applications close on Monday 3 April 2023.

Delegates receiving a sponsorship are carefully selected by a sub-committee of the WAIMH 2023 Local Organising Committee. The sponsorship includes complimentary congress registration, a ticket to the congress dinner, accommodation for up to 4 nights (booked on your behalf) and economy flights up to a value of €500.

The flight costs will be reimbursed after the congress, on submission of an expense claim form and accompanying receipts.

Notification of outcome

You will receive an award letter via email from the congress subcommittee notifying you if you have been awarded a grant by Friday 21 April 2023. Those not selected, will also be notified by this date.
