On behalf of the Executive Board and Council of AOFOG, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 27th AOFOG Congress which will be held from May 23-26, 2022 at The Stones Hotel Legian-Kuta, Bali, Indonesia.
Perkumpulan Obstetri Dan Ginekologi Indonesia (POGI, Indonesian Society of Obstetrics & Gynecology) as a host society has been working hard with the AOFOG Congress organizing committee to prepare this Congress. It was originally scheduled for March 2021, but unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic forced it to be postponed for more than a year. I am grateful to POGI for accepting our decision and preparing again from the beginning.
As you may be aware to hold the Congress is one of the most important parts of our businesses.
The first congress was held in Tokyo, Japan in 1957 when AOFOG was established. During the long history of AOFOG, POGI has hosted the 15th AOFOG Congress in Bali in1993. It was an unforgettable event not only for me but also for all the participants. The Congress 2022 will be therefore a second Congress hosted by POGI in Indonesia and promised to be a wonderful one. As “New normal post-Covid-19”, the Congress will be planned in Hybrid of on-site and online. By doing this way many colleagues will be able to join from all over the world and enjoy the academic exchange and learn issues in our field among Asia Oceania regions
