Dear Esteemed colleagues,

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that we extend our warmest welcome to the 16th Congress of the ASEAN Society of Pediatric Surgery and 3rd Congress of the Malaysian Association of Paediatric Surgery which will be held in conjunction with the 45th Malaysian Paediatric Association Congress. The congress this year 2024 will be held in the vibrant city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Under the overarching theme of "Different Perspectives, One United Vision," we are excited to invite you to join us for this remarkable event that promises to be an enlightening and collaborative gathering of minds in the field of Paediatric healthcare and specifically that of Paediatric surgery.

The collaboration between the Malaysian Paediatric Association (MPA), the Malaysian Association of Paediatric Surgery (MAPS) and the ASEAN Society of Pediatric Surgery to organise this congress signifies a momentous occasion where diverse viewpoints converge with a shared objective, emphasizing unity in vision. This unique collaboration will provide an excellent platform for the exchange of innovative ideas, cutting-edge research, and transformative practices in Paediatric medicine and surgery.

Our congress aims to foster a rich tapestry of discussions, presentations, and workshops, curated to encompass the multifaceted dimensions of Paediatric healthcare. It is an opportunity for us to learn from the diverse experiences and perspectives within our community, leading to a deeper understanding and a more comprehensive approach to Paediatric care.

We invite you to be a part of this exciting event, where we celebrate the differences that enrich our field while uniting in our unwavering commitment to enhance the health and well-being of our young patients.

Mark your calendars and prepare to immerse yourself in a symphony of ideas and expertise at the MPA Congress in collaboration with the MAPS and ASEAN Society of Pediatric Surgery Congress.
