The postponement of the Global Assembly 2020 (GA2020) is disappointing, but at this time the health, safety and wellbeing of GA2020 delegates is of the highest priority. IAPB has been closely monitoring COVID-19 and its global impact. Under these circumstances, we believe that postponing the event is the right decision. 

IAPB and the Singapore Eye Research Institute will continue to work together with determination and commitment to deliver a Global Assembly in 2021. We thank you in advance for your patience during this time and will be in touch with details of the Global Assembly 2021 as soon as possible.   

For those of you who submitted abstracts to the GA2020 or had pre-registered, please visit the GA2020 FAQs for information on how that process is being managed. 

We look forward to seeing you all in Singapore in 2021! Stay healthy and safe.
