Venue & Travel

The International Prader-Willi Syndrome Organisation (IPWSO) warmly welcomes you to our 2019 conference in Havana, Cuba.

Havana is the capital city of Cuba, the largest island of the Caribbean. With a population of over 2 million people, Havana is famed for its history, culture and architecture. The area of Old Havana was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982. A beautiful city with a mixture of Spanish and Caribbean influences, the city makes a fascinating tourist destination.

The conference is taking place at the Cojimar Conference Centre, Havana, Cuba. Our venue is situated on the outskirts of Havana. Built in the 1960s to facilitate scientific events, the centre is now part of the Medical University of Havana and situated on the campus.
