Dear Colleague,

The Asian-Pacific Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (A-PHPBA) is proud to organise our 5th Biennial Congress from 18 to 21 March 2015 in Singapore.

After a successful regional meeting in Shanghai this year, A-PHPBA is now one of region’s largest medical associations dedicated to the study of liver, pancreas and biliary discipline. We are pleased to work hand in hand with the local organising committee, the Hepato Pancreato Biliary Association (Singapore) to make the 2015 Congress a memorable event. This Congress will provide you with an opportunity to share and exchange ideas, and learn new developments in the field of hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) disorders.

Taking place in Singapore, a cosmopolitan city with a state-of-the-art infrastructure, A-PHPBA 2015 promises the best learning and networking platform with an exciting line-up of expert speakers, scientific sessions and social programmes.

In this edition, the theme of congress is ‘Personalised Care for Patients with HPB Diseases’. It will focus on issues related to cirrhotic livers, hepatobiliary malignancies, pancreatic diseases, liver transplantation and research in HPB diseases.

We encourage you to share your latest research findings and present your abstracts and papers at A-PHPBA 2015, an international academic event.

As President of A-PHPBA, I warmly welcome you to Singapore in 2015 and look forward to welcoming you and your family to what will be a memorable Congress.
