Welcome to the BBA
The BBA is a non-profit making organisation whose membership is made up of those people interested in taking forward the Aims of the Association which are burn prevention, and the propagation of knowledge on the best treatment and rehabilitation following a burn injury.
The Association organises educational events and an annual scientific meeting to provide a forum for both members and non-members.
