Welcome to FAOPS web site.

The Federation of Asia and Oceania Perinatal Societies (FAOPS) is a federation of national societies of perinatal and neonatal medicine in the geographical region of Asia and Oceania. It was established in 1978 with the objectives to:

(1) Promote the science and art of perinatology,
(2) Promote maternal, fetal and neonatal welfare,
(3) Maintain liaison and promote co-operation and goodwill with other perinatal organisations,
(4) To provide expert advice to governmental and other bodies pertaining to perinatology,
(5) To promote research and training in perinatology.

Message from the President

Welcome to the FAOPSf home-on-the-web! On behalf of the FAOPS Council and its Advisory Board, it is my distinct honor and privilege to lead the Federation for the next 2 years of 2019-2020. The FAOPS in its 40 years of existence, is more than ever, vibrant with 18 official member countries, each represented by their national perinatal society and 4 other associate member countries geographically located outside the region or awaiting the formation of their societies to become full members of the FAOPS. The revised Constitution and By-Laws of the organization has approved the eligibility for membership of more than one perinatal society belonging to the same member country and also welcomes individual membership from countries who have yet to form their own society. It has also recently approved the conduct of annual FAOPS congresses (from a previous bi-annual congress) to accommodate the growing number of countries bidding to host the congress in the region. The FAOPS also conducts 3 perinatal workshops a year, each one being held in its 3 sub-regional areas, under its designated Deputy Secretary General. I encourage you or your county perinatal society to join the FAOPS, the only multi-country and multi-disciplinary organization in the region, that promotes collaboration in learning, practice, research, quality improvement and program management, in the field of perinatal-neonatal care. Do contact us for any queries you might have through our website administrator or any of our council members with email addresses as published.
