The 3APFA will take place in Oct 10-13, 2009, Nanjing, China

We are very pleased to inform you that the "Third Asia-Pacific Forum on Andrology, in conjunction with the Tenth Anniversary Celebration of Asian Journal of Andrology" will be held in Nanjing, China on October 10-13, 2009. The theme of this conference is Environment, Life Style & Genetic/Epigenetic Factors and Men's Health, endeavoring to explore the profundity and diversity of the contributive factors to current Men's health. On that occasion, we would celebrate the Tenth Anniversary of the foundation of Asian Journal of Andrology since 1999.

The Forum is jointly organized by the Asian Society of Andrology & Asian Journal of Andrology, Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, CAS, Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Nanjing Medical University and sponsored by several institutions and international organizations/societies.

As you know that the first and second "Asia-Pacific Forum on Andrology" were held in 2002 and 2006, respectively, in Shanghai, China. They were successful academic congresses in Asia-Pacific Region with nearly 400-500 participants each time coming from more than 30 countries (regions) of the world and every corner of China. In view of the resounding success, we will organize the congress regularly every 3-4 years in order to provide a senior academic platform for scholastic exchanges and international friendship.

The Scientific Committee, under the guidance of the Advisory Committee, designed a comprehensive scientific programme concentrating one vital issue and embracing a large range of important points including:

  1. Men's Health: Global and Regional Perspectives

  2. Sperm Biology and Fertilization

  3. Male Infertility and Assisted Reproductive Technology

  4. Male Sexual Dysfunction

  5. Male Ageing, Androgen Deficiency and Therapy

  6. Prostate Diseases and Prevention, Diagnosis & Treatment of Prostate Cancer

  7. Environment Hazards to Men's Health

  8. Prevention of Life-threatening STDs/HIV Infections

  9. Prevention of Overpopulation and Male Contraception

  10. Alternative / Traditional Medicine and Andrology

With an aim of bridging the communication between the lab and the clinic, we deeply believe that the Congress deserves the attention from not only basic scientists but also clinicians in the field of andrology.

Besides the traditional plenary lectures and symposia we have innovatively introduced in the programme “Panel Discussion on Holistic Concept on Men's Health, Health Determinants and Health Promotion” and “Public consultation” sessions. “Panel Discussion” session allows an all-dimensional discussion among scientists, public, media, and policy maker. “Public Consultation” session brings doctors out of the clinics to the public hall and allows the public to touch more knowledge on Men's health in a relaxed atmosphere. In its Tenth Anniversary Celebration, AJA will express a great deal of gratitude to people who support and contribute to its development in various ways, and will review the past, summarize the present and shape the future.

In addition, there are several satellite workshops with themes on male infertility, erectile dysfunction, prostate disease, andrology in ARTs, PADAM, etc. A specific session for WHO standard semen analysis manual will also be organized during the Forum.

The Local Organizing Committee in Nanjing will also arrange social programmes through which participants may take an extraordinary journey to Chinese culture and history, ups and downs as well as the past and the present.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 3APFA, Nanjing, China, which no doubt will be a memorable occasion for fruitful interchanges of ideas and the development of long-lasting friendship in the coming years.
