The individual members of a national paediatric organisation which is a full member of EAP, are by default, without any subscription fee, non-voting individual members of EAP and they can participate in the activities of the Permanent councils and strategic advisory groups.

Affiliated Individual Membership is open to citizens of all countries.

These members shall have a university degree; they may be board-certified paediatricians/specialists in paediatrics (or equivalent) or any other physician or scientist with a special interest in paediatrics. Active affiliated individual members may assign themselves to one of the Permanent Councils but they do not have any voting rights in the General Assembly. They can participate in the strategic advisory groups of EAP.
