The Asian Pacific Digestive Week 2023 (APDW 2023) is the region’s digestive and gastroenterology conference which will be held this year under the theme “Optimizing Strategies for Maximizing Outcomes.” The conference provides an opportunity for doctors and medical specialists to join and exchange scientific information on treating gastrointestinal diseases as well as other ailments.

Held annually in countries from around Asia and the Pacific, APDW is hosting for the second time in Thailand which once hosted in 2012. Gastroenterology is an increasingly important field in Thailand.

“According to the information from National Cancer Institute’s Thai Cancer Registry in 2022, the majority of Thai people having cancers were liver, cholangiocarcinoma, followed by colon and rectal cancers,” said Prof. Somchai Leelakusolvong, President of the Gastroenterological Association of Thailand (GAT) and Congress president of the Asia Pacific Digestive Week (APDW 2023).

“This indicates that gastrointestinal health problems should be widely recognized and public should have easier access to diagnosis and treatments. This conference is a good opportunity for the government to see the progress in research and innovation in gastroenterology and hepatology and take part in supporting the development and sustainability of medical advancements in this critical field.”

“Thailand is honored to, once again, to host of the APDW this year.
