There a number of different societies, federations and interest groups that relate to development. Some have a broad focus on all forms of development while some can be more narrowly related to human development and associated clinical issues. I have included a brief list and general information below, these groups are always happy to welcome new members and have either a journal or scientific meeting(s) associated with the group.
