Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of the organising committee, it is my great honour to welcome you to the 17th Congress of the Baltic Association of Dermatovenereologists (BADV), which will be held on 17-19 September 2021 in Kaunas, Lithuania.
The BADV Congress has become a nice tradition of bringing together the dermatovenereologists from the three Baltic countries - Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. Every year, more and more international leading experts and colleagues from other countries become active participants of this Congress.
We are pleased to hold this traditional Congress in which we will discuss the hottest topics in dermatology and venereology, share clinical experiences, and establish long-term international collaboration. Clinical dermatology and venereology are undergoing rapid changes in terms of diagnostics and treatment. The 17th BADV Congress will continue to serve as a good medium for updating most recent technologies and treatment options of various medical conditions for delivering optimal care to patients. The Congress also fosters the exchange of new research data with academic dermatologists, sharing your successful experiences with colleagues.
Since the 14th century, Kaunas has been known as the old historic town of the Hanseatic League, a waterway trading union. It is the second-largest city of Lithuania that became the provisional capital of Lithuania for 20 years during the Interwar period. Cultural characteristics and vibrant city life offer a great platform for many activities around the Congress and will make your participation a memorable event.
Experience a new destination, come to Kaunas in 2021, and enjoy the Congress as well as Lithuanian autumn colours.
