My dear fellow child advocates,

Once more, as in the last thirteen years, all those working for the health and well-being not only of Asian children but of the children of the world, will gather to share new knowledge and expertise in the area of pediatric research.

It is such a great honor that the 14th Congress of the Asian Society for Pediatric Research will be hosted by our local society, the Philippine Pediatric Society, Inc. This will be a great challenge as well as a great chance to host the meeting of the region’s most brilliant minds in the area of pediatric research.

Many changes had occurred in the Asian child’s environment in the last few decades-physical, social, technological, cultural and economic, all of which have a direct or indirect effect on the child. Many changes are slow and hardly palpable but some are rapid and drastic. Hence, for this year, the Organizing Committee of the 14th Congress has for its theme, “Emergent and Relevant Issues in Child Health”. As in the past Congresses, novel researches in all pediatric disciplines will be presented but for this year, we decided to revisit the areas and put special emphasis on social pediatrics, behavioral pediatrics, disasters, environmental issues, ethics in research and pediatric education.

We are all looking forward for a fruitful Congress!

Welcome to Manila!
