Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

We are looking forward and we invite everyone to attend this prestigious event, the 12th Congress of the Asian-Pacific Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis (APSTH), APSTH 2023; “Hemostasis & Thrombosis: Bench to Bedside”.

APSTH 2023 is jointly organized by the Asian-Pacific Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis (APSTH), the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH), Members of the Malaysian Laboratory Hematology Society (MMLHS), and Malaysian Society of Hematology (MSH).

This event will be the most important international meeting of the year in the Asia-Pacific region in the field of thrombosis and hemostasis. The scientific program is planned for everyone: doctors, researchers, nurses, scientific officers, laboratory technologists, and medical students.

While the committee is hard at work behind the scenes with preparations, I would like to encourage everyone to sign up early for this not-to-be-missed opportunity.

Apart from being an opportune time to update yourselves at the conference and network with colleagues, it will also be an excellent opportunity for you and your family to take some time off to soak in all the beautiful sights and attractions that the state of Sarawak has to offer.

The event will be held in Kuching, Sarawak, the largest state in Malaysia located on the island of Borneo. The city is proud of its international business reputation surrounded by beautiful natural surroundings where delegates have the opportunity to explore a plethora of cultures, adventures, nature, food, and festivals only in Sarawak.

Do not miss out on what I am sure will be a memorable occasion.
Looking forward to seeing you all in Sarawak!
