We are committed to organising the World Down Syndrome Congress (WDSC) in different locations around the world every 3 years. 

The WDSC is an unmatched opportunity for people with Down syndrome, families, advocates, professionals and researchers to meet, share knowledge, insight and experience with others from different countries and environments around the world. Those who attend once rarely miss it again!

We are very grateful to our national hosts, who put in a huge amount of work to make WDSC happen.
