The promotion of pediatric neurosurgery throughout the world


The World Federation of Neurological Surgeons (WFNS) consists of three society groupings. Group A has five regional associations: North American, Latin American, European, Pan African, and Asian and Australian associations. Group B includes national, regional, multinational neurosurgical societies that include 89 societies participated by 72 countries. Group C has six affiliated organizations, which is the smallest group with 5–20 members (Fig. 1). The Pediatric Neurosurgery Committee of WFNS has played the important role of sponsoring region-based education courses, as well as organizing pediatric neurosurgeryrelated symposiums. Dr. Di Rocco, who serves as the current chair of this committee, has organized many courses and symposiums such as the Asian Australian Advanced Course and Latin American Courses, among others.
