Dear Colleague
 
There is still time to register for our first respiratory meeting in South Asia!    The International Primary Care Respiratory Group (IPCRG) and the Primary Care Respiratory Group Sri Lanka invite you to join them in Colombo in August.
 
It's going to be a truly international meeting providing you with updates, answers and skills on a comprehensive range of new primary care respiratory research and key challenges for the region.    There is also time to network with colleagues from around the world and to share ideas, experience and practice.
Abstract authors should now have received confirmation whether their abstract was accepted as an oral presentation or poster.  This includes details of the session they have been allocated, time of presentation or time to be by your poster and details of how to register (all presenting authors must register).
 
The current programme is on the website. You will also be able to download the abstracts from the website.
 
Selected abstracts will be published as an online supplement to npj Primary Care Respiratory Medicine after the meeting.  Thanks to all those who responded promptly to editing queries.
