Welcome Message from the Organising Host
On behalf of the ASEAN Pediatric Federation, we welcome all of you to the UNESCO Heritage State of Penang, Malaysia for the 15th APFC (ASEAN Pediatric Federation Congress) 2014.
We have chosen a theme that will appeal to everyone dealing with children, i.e "Integrated Approach to Childcare: The Way Forward”. The care of children transcends all known barriers and involve experts and professionals from many medical and allied health professionals. Yet we rarely provide an opportunity and platform for these experts to meet in a single venue for serious discussions.
The 15th Congress intends to serve such a purpose. We have invited not only a distinguished faculty but will also have the distinct pleasure of inviting some parents and children to share their experiences. Listening to and interacting with them will surely open our horizons and improve our care for both the children and their families.
The Congress venue will provide a picturesque setting for this meeting. Furthermore, I am sure that Penang which is the home of UNESCO Heritage Site of George Town, will provide lasting memories to all.
So, please book these dates and we shall see you in Penang, Malaysia.
Malaysian Paediatric Association 2013-2015
