ISPD Asia Pacific Chapter Meeting 2023 – New Delhi
September 22, 2023 - September 24, 2023
Peritoneal dialysis is a well-recognized and accepted modality of dialysis with results comparable to or better than haemodialysis, at least in the first couple of years. Nevertheless, South Asia lags behind other countries in the Asia Pacific region especially China and Thailand, in spite of local manufacturing and PD being cheaper than HD. There are several reasons, some of which are lack of training, lack of PD education, local and central government policies, and lack of physician reimbursement.
In addition to these issues being addressed, recent knowledge in PD needs to be imparted to PD practitioners to convince them to initiate patients on PD. The 10th APCM (ISPD Asia-Pacific Chapter Meeting) scheduled in New Delhi from September 22-24, 2023 will specifically aim to tackle these issues and bring about heightened awareness and thus provide a fillip to increased PD usage.
In addition, India will be very attractive as a tourist destination to all delegates. With the best of beaches, wildlife, adventure tourism, diverse culture, rich cuisine, and heritage architecture, there is something to attract everyone. Be sure not to miss this opportunity to come to India.
