It is with great anticipation and excitement that I extend a codial invitation to you to the Joint Congress of APAAACI and APAPARI 2016.
As a regional alliance of national allergy, asthma and clinical Immunology societies, APAAACI is proud to partner with APAPARI and MSAI to host the Joint Congress. It is specially meaningful because holding two separate meetings of APAAACI and APAPARI in a year could be waste of energy as most of the attendees and scientific programs are overlapped. In the future, we also may consider a closer involvement with the journal ‘Asia Pacific Allergy’ as a platform of both societies.
The prevalence of allergic diseases are increasing worldwide including Asia-Pacific region. We are concerned about the rising medical and economic burden of allergic diseases, reflected on the Congress theme “The Era of Allergy: Local and Global Insights and Intervention”.
The Joint Congress in Kuala Lumpur this year will provide you with knowlege and information from the latest progress in addition to current theory and practice in the field of allergy and clinical immunology. You will also enjoy the nature and culture of Malaysia.
The success of the Congress depends upon our dedicated Member Societies and those of you who join us for the Congress. I look forward to seeing you all in KL in October.
President, Asia Pacific Association of Allergy, Asthma and Clinical Immunology (APAAACI)
