The American Academy of Pediatrics

The American Academy of Pediatrics—an organization of 60,000 pediatricians committed to the optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.



The mission of the American Academy of Pediatrics is to attain optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents and young adults. To accomplish this, AAP shall support the professional needs of its members.

AAP History

The AAP was founded in 1930 by 35 pediatricians to serve as an independent forum to address children’s health needs. At that time, the idea that children had unique developmental and health needs was new. Practices that are now standard preventive care (i.e., immunization, regular health exams) were only just beginning to change the custom of treating children as “miniature adults.” The Academy also maintains the Pediatric History Center, which collects and archives materials related to the history of pediatrics in the United States and Canada and the history of the Academy itself.

European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology




The idea to create the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology was first conceived in Helsinki, where Professor R.G. Edwards, from Cambridge University, and Dr. Jean Cohen, from Paris, consulted their colleagues about the need to for a society that would stimulate the study and research in the field of reproductive medicine and science. Both the idea to establish such a society and the outcome of their meetings proved to be successful in many ways.

After several meetings it was decided that the Society should hold its first Annual Meeting in Bonn, 1985. On that occasion the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology was officially founded as a result of a broad and lively discussion during the first Annual General Meeting where delegates from all over Europe participated in the debates. Since the early days, ESHRE gradually grew into the Society that we know today.
