Organizing Committee



The World Federation of Associations of Pediatric Surgeons

WOFAPS was founded on 15th October 1974 in Sao Paulo, Brazil during a Pediatric Surgery Congress with representatives from 43 Countries under the Presidency of Prof. Virgilio Carvalho Pinto and Secretary General Prof. Josa Pinus. Prof. Harvey Beardmore (Canada) was elected the first President of the WOFAPS.



Asian Association of Pediatric Surgeons

Asian Association of Pediatric Surgeons (the AAPS) was formed by a group of visionary surgeons who felt that in order to succeed in improving the surgical care for children, Pediatric Surgery must be a dedication and a separate specialty. The AAPS has been a huge success, and pediatric Surgery is now a separate specialty in most countries.



The Vietnam Association of Pediatric Surgeons

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.
