Welcome Message

Ladies and Gentleman,

I would like to welcome everyone who participated in the APAPU 2022 Korea online meeting.

In the past 2 years, our daily lives have been heavily affected by COVID 19. We didn't have contact meetings for a long time. So, we missed offline meeting. One year ago, My expectation is that today`s meeting would be possible as a contact meeting. But the situation in Korea deteriorated suddenly 3 months ago and unfortunately switched to the online meeting. Anyway, we should continue our academic meetings in spite of difficult situation. So, we have prepared a wonderful and highly informative program with great guest speakers and our outstanding APAPU member speakers. The APAPU 2022 Korea congress will be a good opportunity to exchange academic knowledge among our Asia Pacific pediatric urologists and pediatric surgeons.

Shortly reminding the history of our society, APAPU was founded in 1998 by doctors from four countries and is now a representative society of the Asian-Pacific region in Pediatric Urology with 17 participating countries. I`d like to express my deepest gratitude to the senior members in APAPU for their role to develop our APAPU society. Inheriting the spirit of our seniors, our society is operated with the enthusiasm of the board members. This year, in 2022, Thailand participated as an APAPU member.

I`d like to introduce the international guest speakers, Professor Paul Austin from USA, Luis Braga from Canada, Antonio Macedo Jr. from Brazil. And prof. Philip Ransley as guest speaker and actually teacher in our APAPU society. I thank for attending as an international speakers despite the changing circumstances.

Now, let me introduce you to the people who have worked the most hard for this event. I`d like to thank the local scientific committee director, Dr. KwanJin Park and the scientific committee members for organizing the program for the Scientific Committee. I`d like to thank Dr. Minki Baek of the local secretary general for organizing the event of the conference.

We would also like to express our deepest gratitude to the sponser companies who supported us for this event. Silver sponsor, Ferring, Hanmi Pharm. And Bronz sponsor Astellas, JW pharmaceutical, Dong-A ST.

I hope you all enjoy the 3 days APAPU meeting and sincerely hope that you all be well.

Thank you
