Professor Suporn Treepongkaruna, M.D.
President, APPSPGHAN

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of Asian Pan-Pacific Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (APPSPGHAN), I am greatly delighted to invite you all to participate in the 15th APPSPGHAN Congress between October 12 and 15, 2022 in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. APPSPGHAN is a non-profit organization, with the mission to promote knowledge of pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition through scientific exchanges and research for the benefit of children in the Asia-Pacific region. The 15th APPSPGHAN Congress, under the theme “Beyond Kid’s Gut & Liver-Toward the Holistic Care” will be a great opportunity for colleagues in Asia-Pacific region and all around the world to share cutting-edge knowledge and practical management for the better care for our children with gastroenterological, hepatological and nutritional disorders.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Organizing Committee and the Malaysian Pediatric Association for their great effort in organizing the 15th APPSPGHAN Congress amid the COVID-19 pandemic. After having virtual meetings for the past two years, we are excited to see each other once again and to meet the world-renowned experts at this academic congress. I am highly optimistic that we all will be able to attend the 15th APPSPGHAN Congress in person.

Looking forward to seeing you in Kota Kinabalu.
