President's Message, AFPMH

Danardi Sosrosumihardjo


It is a great pleasure for me to take over the presidency of the AFPMH from our Philippines counterpart. The Federation is now based in Indonesia from 2015 until 2016. Since its birth in 1981, AFPMH has achieved many successes in networking and exchanging knowledge and information. This is achieved through our meeting in the biennial congress and regular online publication of the ASEAN Journal of Psychiatry, which is the official journal of the Federation. From its five original member countries of ASEAN (Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia and Philippines), the Federation has, over the years, increased the participation from other ASEAN countries, which now includes the Indochina region. Recently, during the 14th ASEAN Congress of the AFPMH held in Radisson Blu, Cebu Philippines from 13th to 14th of November 2014, Cambodia which was officially included earlier as our new federation member has continuously become an active member of the federation.
