Welcome to the website of the 21st Conference of the Asian Federation on Intellectual Disabilities!
The aim of the AFID Conferences is to create a platform for South Asian countries to share and learn from each other, creating a network of mutual support. Commonalities of culture, tradition and religious beliefs among these countries have made for better interaction and understanding of each other's experiences and difficulties. At the last conference on Jeju Island, Korea in August 2010, New Delhi based Samadhan was selected as the host organization for AFID 2013.
