About #APLAR2024

Welcome to APLAR 2024

The APLAR Executive Committee and the Singapore Society of Rheumatology extend their warmest welcome to you for the 26th Asia-Pacific League of Associations for Rheumatology Congress, set to take place in Singapore.

Scheduled from 21-25 August 2024, this congress promises to be an exceptional gathering, embracing the vibrant spirit of Singapore and fostering an immersive in-person congress format.

Join us as we celebrate not only the remarkable hospitality of our Singaporean colleagues but also commemorate a pivotal moment in the APLAR’s journey, aiming to transcend communication and cultural barriers among rheumatologists, physicians, nurses, researchers, and allied health professionals across the diverse Asia-Pacific landscape.

Under the overarching theme of “Bridging Countries Forging Progress”, the congress will feature an array of internationally acclaimed speakers, regional experts, and local talents, offering cutting-edge research, scientific insights, and medical advancements through plenary sessions, concurrent workshops, and poster presentations.

With the number of rheumatologists in the APAC region surpassing 25,000, this congress serves as an ever-evolving platform for connection, learning, and collaboration among our esteemed regional peers.

We eagerly anticipate your presence in Singapore in August 2024, as we embark on another milestone in our collective journey toward a better understanding and management of rheumatic diseases in our region.
