HONG KONG SOCIETY OF RHEUMATOLOGY

The Hong Kong Society of Rheumatology (HKSR) celebrates its 33rd anniversary in 2021. Founded in 1988, it has grown into a society with a membership of 286 in 2021. Members include rheumatologists, family physicians, private practitioners, specialty nurses and allied health care professionals.

Throughout the years, the society has contributed much to the development of the specialty of rheumatology in Hong Kong as well as in regional areas. In 2006, we organized the Asia Autoimmunity Forum, and in 2010 we hosted the 14th APLAR Congress for the first time. We will host APLAR Congress 2022.

Locally, the HKSR hosts International Conference of Chinese Rheumatologists (ICCR) annually since 2017. Different special interest groups (SIG) have been set up to enhance rheumatology skills and develop recommendations for management. Our new official journal, the Journal of Clinical Rheumatology and Immunology, has become an important platform for knowledge and information for regional rheumatologists. This biannual publication has started on-line publishing since 2019, and now includes original articles, review papers, case reports, local consensus guidelines and a biologics registry in Hong Kong.

The HKSR also supports rheumatology patients by organising seminars, promoting charity fundraising events, and producing educational materials. It closely networks with the Hong Kong Arthritis and Rheumatism Foundation, the Hong Kong Community Rehabilitation Network, and rheumatology patient self-help groups.

The HKSR is a strong advocate for academic research. A project fund was set up in 2013 to support local research projects. Throughout the years, our members have contributed much to academic pursuits in systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, spondyloarthritis, and inflammatory myositis.

Looking towards the future, the HKSR will continue to assume the responsibility of a leading organisation for rheumatology education and development, not only in Hong Kong but also in the Asia-pacific region.
