Messsage from Secretary

Dear Colleagues,

As you all are well aware, the Asia Pacific Burn Association is the face of burn care in the Asia Pacific countries. The association is a vibrant collection of dedicated and research oriented burn care givers who are taking this science into the next level. It is hence with proud privilege that I assume the mantle of the 1st Honorary Secretary of this august association

It is our pleasure to introduce our website for your perusal. Though fledgling, it is a step in the right direction towards introducing our association to all. Learning about activities of the past, present and future will now be just a click away. Every association is only as strong as its member count. To facilitate memberships, presently there is no membership fee for entrants! Kindly visit the membership link provided on the site and fill in your details in the online form to register yourselves. A strong membership database will help increase the participation of the future Asia Pacific Burn Conferences and also disseminate information about research and fellowship activities in the region.

Soon the APBA will also announce fellowships for travel and best paper presentations in the APB congress to encourage the younger generation to present their best research work. I hope they take advantage of these upcoming opportunities to upgrade their knowledge and help improve Burn care in their own country.

The future is hopeful and the path is well lit. Let’s take APBA ahead together!

Best wishes,

Vinita Puri
Honorary Secretary
