Welcome Note

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of Asian Association of Paediatric Surgeons, it is with great honour we welcome you to The 25th Congress of the Asian Association of Paediatric Surgeons (AAPS2018) held in Dubai – United Arab Emirates from 29th November to 3rd December 2018 hosted by Dubai Heath Authority.

The theme of AAPS 2018 is “Improving Children’s Health, Protecting the Future” and the objective is to raise the standard of surgical specialties, especially Paediatric Surgery, and that every child receives the best care.

AAPS 2018 is targeting to set its benchmark as the largest ever gathering of Paediatric Surgery experts in the region  by bringing together AAPS members from the 48 Asian countries, the Arab World and many more from the neighbouring region, including World Leading Experts, Healthcare Institutions, Research Universities, Paediatric Surgery associations, Members, Surgeon-Scientists and young student-surgeons.

AAPS 2018 program including pre-congress workshops and live transmissions held on 29th and 30th November 2018, presents a well-balanced educational curriculum both scientifically and practically, offering highly valuable education to paediatric surgeons, surgical trainees, and surgical nurses, featuring state of the art innovations, discussions and presentations on the core components of Paediatric Surgery, with ample opportunities for networking, collaboration, and sharing of ideas, techniques and tools. Prominent practitioners and experts will be invited to head-line the scientific program and share their knowledge.

I believe that the congress will provide exceptional opportunity for everyone to share & acquire knowledge and most memorable days in the wonderful city of Dubai.

I look forward to welcoming you to AAPS 2018, Dubai.

As Salam Alaykum!
