The “Global Initiative for Consensus in Pediatrics” (CIP) is a public, nonprofit, unbiased, apolitical and independent organization. The Limited Liability Company is legally registered in Cyprus, and was founded for the purpose of promoting and seeking optimal Global Pediatric Health Care by establishing academic debate platforms that stimulate Consensus and agreements on main child health pathologies, difficulties and controversies.
The main objectives and principles on which the CIP is based are:
