Welcome Message from AOFOG President
On behalf of the m Council, it gives me immense pleasure in inviting you to the AOFOG Congress 2019.
Despite the geographic, socio-political and linguistic diversity of our region, the Asia Oceania Federation continues to grow from strength to strength and we now boast 28 National Member Societies with a total membership exceeding 22,000. The AOFOG Congress gives us a unique opportunity to meet every 2 years to update and share our knowledge on women’s reproductive health and to explore the way forward in improving their status in our region. In the words of Helen Keller “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”.
The Philippines Obstetrical & Gynecological Society that has been tasked with organising this Congress, has been doing a marvellous job in line with the Congress tag line of “Strengthening the road to women’s health ……Reaching new heights”. While addressing cutting edge technology and concepts, the “bread and butter” stuff of our specialty will not be neglected especially with regard to its application in low resource countries. To help us in this endeavour, we have enlisted the help of luminaries in our specialty and a casual glance at the Speakers list reads like a who’s who of Obstetrics & Gynaecology in the world.
This edition of the AOFOG Congress will be held in the exciting city of Manila. Our hosts are internationally acclaimed for their hospitality and fun loving nature and the Organising Committee is pulling out all the stops to make this the best ever AOFOG Congress. We are expecting a turn out of over 2000 delegates – so don’t miss out on this opportunity for scientific advancement against a background of fun and adventure.
Mabuhay literally means “come alive” so please do come and join us this November 2019 at what promises to be a lively event and partake of all the best that this region has to offer. You will not regret it!
President AOFOG 2017-2019
