Welcome to the SA Paediatric Pulmonology web
resource, under the auspices of the South African
This is a free web site for
health care professionals who are interested in
paediatric respiratory health. We hope the contents will
be useful for education and training, for providing
clinical care, for advocacy and for stimulating new
ideas for research. We hope to make instructive
clinical cases, images, published standards and
guidelines, presentations and reviews available. The
overall aim is to develop a great educational resource
that will be useful to practising health care
professionals or those who are in training. We invite
you to participate by submitting suitable material.
We’d also welcome any comments or ideas for the
development of the website. To submit something please….
We look forward to developing this potentially
great resource together.
