6th WoCoVA postponed

Since it takes longer before we can offer the latest research and developments in the 6th WoCoVA in Athens, Greece, we looked for a new way to keep the WoCoVA community alive and connected.

We offer an online program at 17-18 June this year.

The main topic will be COVID-19 in relation to vascular access in different parts of the world. Also, the patient experience and the daily practice with COVID-19 patients will be covered in this online program.

After the online event we continue towards the 6th WoCoVA in April 2021 with 8 monthly live Q&A sessions.


After making some tough decisions, we are happy to announce that the 6th WoCoVA will be postponed to 7-9 April 2021. All organizations involved, worked very hard to make this possible and we are looking very much forward to meeting you in Athens in spring next year.

The scientific committee decided to offer the same (just finalized) program with the relevant theme: “The Power of a Team”.

We are all using online tools to communicate, but meeting friends, colleagues and vascular access (VA) specialists is of high value as we are experiencing the restrictions during this COVID-19 crisis.
For those who already registered for June 2020, we move all registrations to 2021. We are also asking our sponsors and exhibitors to join us in making the 6th WoCoVA a great success again and to further support this unique global network of VA specialists. We will inform everyone involved separately, but of course we are open for questions and suggestions.

Since we are getting more and more used to online meetings and communication, the Global Vascular Access Network (GloVANet), will offer an online event on relevant topics and to improve global networking and sharing of knowledge. This online event will be free accessible for all. The program and registration will be available soon.

WoCoVA wants to thank you all for your support and your contribution at the forefront of this pandemic, providing unstintingly to all of our patients, your skills, your knowledge, your time, and your compassion.


To enhance the organizational structure and visibility of the global vascular access network, all parts of the global network will be named: Global Vascular Access network. WoCoVA, being the largest and most important network event, will be part of the umbrella organization.

Besides the biennial WoCoVA congresses and Special events, Committees, Education, Research and Projects,  GloVANet will be the worldwide network.
