• Asian Pacific Federation of Societies for Surgery of the Hand

History of the APFSSH

The discussions which finally led to the formation of the Asian-Pacific Federation of Societies for Surgery of the Hand (APFSSH) were conducted in Hong Kong on the 30th April and 1st May, 1994. Representatives of all founding societies, except India, were present at these meetings during which the name of the Federation and its objectives were established. A tentative structure was established with a Delegates' Council, consisting of representatives from each prospective member society, and an acting Executive Committee, with appointments to be confirmed at a the next official Council meeting after individual member societies had accepted a formal invitation to join the Federation.
