Asia Pacific Society for Immunodeficiencies (ASPID)
A group of over 60 Asian paediatricians and scientists interested in Primary Immunodeficiency (PID) met in Osaka, April 2015 and pledged to establish the Asia Pacific Society for Immunodeficiencies with the following missions:
To care and cure patients with PID
To share our PID experience so as to promote collaboration & education
To improve PID management through understanding its genetics & pathogenesis
To advocate and advance the care of PID patients through engaging governments, patient organizations & industry
With the dedications, passion and determinations of leading PID clinicians and scientists in Asia, APSID was inaugurated on 29th April 2016 in the historical Béthanie Campus, Pokfulam. This was followed by the APSID Inaugural Scientific Congress held on 30th April and 1st May, which was well attended by over 300 local and overseas delegates.
