Welcome Message from the Chairman,
UAA Congress 2019 Organising Committee

Dear Potential Participants/Partners,

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the Urological Association of Asia Congress (UAA) 2019, to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 7th-10th August 2019.

This will be the second time since 2002, that this prestigious event will be hosted by the Malaysian Urological Association (MUA). This previously biennial event has now grown so much in stature that it has since 2015 been held as an annual event, further underlining its importance and relevance to the Asian urology community.

UAA Congress 2019 will provide an excellent meeting-place, where leading experts will gather to update, brainstorm, share information and speak on the latest developments pertaining to the discipline. Attended by highly respected members of the medical profession in the region and top representatives from the various related industry sectors, the UAA Congress has, through the years, gained a solid reputation as a viable platform for the exchange and dissemination of the latest and most innovative knowledge and technology from Asia and the rest of the world.

The theme for the 2019 Congress is: “Unifying Asia Thru Urology” – especially relevant in today’s setting, where achievements in the field of urology have been at the forefront of advances in technology, usually in collaboration with other related specialties. Urology has traditionally been on the cutting-edge of surgical technology, and Urologists have to keep up with the relevant skills and procedures to meet the multiple new challenges in today’s fast-changing world. Strength comes from unity, and a united Urology in Asia is potentially a leader in advancing Urology globally.

A comprehensive scientific programme has been lined up – featuring live surgeries, the latest state-of-the-art lectures and key opinions from renowned Asian and international experts, in-depth Masterclasses, Resident Training courses, specialties and Nursing symposiums. There will be ample opportunities for Regional, Asian and International participants to meet up and discuss current issues.

The MUA is indeed honoured to host this important Congress in Kuala Lumpur in 2019. Malaysian urologists are indeed solidly represented by MUA which provides a common platform for the urologists from the country’s Ministry of Health, the Universities and the Private Sector

Malaysia is a well-known tourist destination, with its multi-cultural attractions, its food, its people and their warm hospitality. An interesting social schedule has also been planned, with a wide choice of places of interest to visit and things to do.

We look forward to hosting all delegates in 2019 at the award-winning and world-class venue of the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. We hope you will not miss this opportunity to be part of this exciting event, and join us in recognizing and sharing the best in Urology practices and latest developments.
