The Scandinavian Delegation of Family Physicians was founded in 1988 when AAFP hosted the World Wonca Conference in New Orleans. We were encouraged to form another group the following year.
We did just that – and every year since. We have attended RACGP's Annual Conferences since 1996. The Delegation has attended Wonca conferences in general since 1992.
Thus, our delegations have seen most of the world: Europe, Africa, the Americas, Australia, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Phillipines, China, Hong Kong, Iceland, Greenland and some more.
We celebrated our 25th anniversary in 2013! Scandinavian FPs are very much interested in international family medicine and will continue to visit with our colleagues all over the World.
In 2015 the name of the organization was changed to: The Association of The Scandinavian Delegation of Family Physicians.
