The Asia Pacific Paediatric Endocrine Society (APPES) is a regional paediatric endocrine society that was formed in 1999 to provide a forum for those with an interest in paediatric endocrinology and diabetes in the Asia Pacific region.

While there are a number of international and regional paediatric endocrine societies, it was considered that the Asia Pacific region with its large population, large area and unique issues would benefit from having its own regional forum.

The society has a growing membership with members from:

  • Australia,
  • China
  • Hong Kong
  • India
  • Indonesia
  • Japan
  • Korea
  • Malaysia
  • New Zealand
  • Pakistan
  • Philippines
  • Singapore
  • Thailand
  • Vietnam

The challenges facing paediatric endocrinologists in our region are enormous and we hope that APPES will be able to make a genuine contribution in future years to the improved health of children with diabetes, growth and endocrine disorders.
