Become an Affiliate Member (non-doctor)

The Affiliate non-doctor membership category is for those devoted to improving child health outcomes and who share a vision of a healthier future for children and young people across the world.

We know it’s not only paediatricians who are committed to improving child health outcomes and who share our vision of a healthier future for children and young people across the world.

Affiliate membership is open to those with a professional interest in child health, but who do not have a primary medical qualification. If you're a paediatric or neonatal nurse, pharmacist, social worker, teacher, school nurse or allied health professional, join us as an affiliate member.
