On behalf of the Asean Federation of Cardiology (AFC) it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 24th Asean Congress of Cardiology which held in Jakarta hosted by The Indonesian Heart Association from September 19 – 22, 2019. This congress is being held in conjunction with the “28th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Indonesian Heart Association“.
Asean Federation of Cardiology was founded in 1975. The 1st ASEAN Congress of Cardiology held in Pertamina Cottage Hotel, Denpasar, Bali. Previous meeting was held in Bangkok, Thailand in 2018, and in 2019 for the five times held in Indonesia.
The Exchange scientific and academic idea amongst the ASEAN countries has been highly enriching and together the very cordial fellowship amongst doctors, nurses, and technicians, has led to better and warmer relationship within the cardiology fraternities of all the ASEAN countries.
With the fast progress in cardiology, this field continuous to evolve, and it is important that we keep up-to-date through continuous education and training. Through this congress I am confident that we will be able to discuss many ways to sharing knowledge and skill.
