The New Zealand Paediatric Surveillance Unit is a member of the International Network of Paediatric Surveillance Units (INOPSU). The Network was formed in August 1998 at a meeting of ten paediatric surveillance units that expressed a desire to link with each other.
This meeting took place at the 22nd International Congress of Paediatrics in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The first INOPSU conference was held in Canada in 2000.
The mission of INOPSU is the advancement of knowledge of uncommon childhood infections and disorders, and the participation of paediatricians in surveillance on a national and international basis so as to achieve a series of benefits.
