India’s population is equivalent to 17.71% of total world’s population. Assuming one in 15,000, estimated 91,350 PWS patients are in India. Considering the neighbouring countries' population, the PWS patient figures will be alarming and challenging in this region and they need support.

In the past, no IPWSO or any other international PWS conference has happened in this part of the world. The IPWSO conference will bring worldwide PWS experts to India. It will help PWS patients, families, teachers, caregivers and related medical personnel.

Many of children are either undiagnosed or diagnosed but not well-informed. Having IPWSO conference will create awareness among medical fraternity to get latest information and updates, which in turn will be beneficial for the families.  The IPWSO conference will not only help in new diagnosis, new technology, new research but also create awareness in making families known to PWS association. We also hope it’ll create some media awareness for betterment of the PWS families. It also strengthens our country’s networks with those of other countries, where a number of PWS and genetic disorder researches are underway and are at advanced stage.

Delhi offers excellent facilities for cultural, commercial, tourism and travel activities. Its rapid development has transformed Delhi into a major cultural, health, political, and commercial centre of India. Global
