Greetings from the Organizing Committee of Pedicon 2014. It gives us immense pleasure to invite you to the ‘51st Annual National Conference of the Indian Academy of Pediatrics’ - the PEDICON 2014, to be held from the 8th to the 12th of January 2014 at the Brilliant Convention Centre, Indore (M.P). IAP has already completed 50 years of its journey dedicated to child health and in the process achieved many goals but the country is still far from what is the desired target. Keeping this in mind it is essential to appraise and analyse our methods and efforts to reduce the under 5 child mortality. Therefore, we have decided the theme of this Pedicon as "Achieving MDG - 4: Strategies and Action".
