Vietnamese Association of Pediatric Surgeons (VAPS) was founded in 1995 with only ten pioneers, of which Professor Nguyen Thanh Liem was the president. The vision of the Society was to assure the growth of pediatric surgery in Vietnam and to create a very first official organization where all pediatric surgeons could join, learn and share their knowledge in the field.

Since then, VAPS has continued to develop and expand throughout the country. After 15 years, we now have more than 200 members. Professor Liem has continued his term as president until now.

It is such an honor for VAPS and for Vietnam, in the year 2020, to be elected as the host for the 26th AAPS Congress. In addition, the meeting will be held in conjunction with “the 15th Congress of the Vietnam Association of Pediatric Surgeons (VAPS 2020)”. Therefore, this is a perfect opportunity for VAPS members to attend the very important international events in Pediatric Surgery. VAPS would love to welcome all colleagues and friends to come to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in 2020.
