Dear colleagues,

Greetings from your secretary with warm wishes for a very happy, joyous and “happening” year ahead.The year 2020 has indeed been a milestone year for our Indian Academy of Pediatrics.

I am lost of words to express my sincere gratitude to each one among you for sharing the love and affection through the family of IAP.

It is most fortunate to be in the ‘Dream Team’ lead by Dr Bakul Jayant Parekh entrusted to take this mega organisation of 30,000 plus members forward this academy year. As such, it demands extra commitment and effort from my end to do justice to the responsibility beautifully shouldered by my predecessors in the yesteryear.

All the team members are like the factors of the complement pathway. One team member activates the next. All of us will thus complement each other in the IAP work and result in its betterment. President Dr Bakul Jayant Parekh is taking maximum care to have the modules spread out equitably across all the zones with special attention ‘’to reach the unreached’’ branches through IAP project.

PEDICON 2020 at Indore lead by Dr V P Goswami has set a new benchmark by showcasing a wonderful unparalleled mix of academics & opportunities for socialization blended by the most heartwarming hospitality. Our Team of Executive Board Members 2020 got into full steam in the backdrop of this lovely ambiance.

Along with Jt Secretary Admin Dr Samir Hasan Dalwai & Treasurer Dr Purna Kurkure, we at CIAP Office have set the focus straight to have the systems in place. Utmost priority has been placed for keeping the communication lines open and prompt with each member across the country. Online updation of member data will not remain a dream hereafter. We are almost through with total revamp of our website lead by Dr Samir R Shah, Dr Uday Pai and TEAM to replace the conventional physical server with the virtual cloud server which can give us much more room to host and network. To implement these, we look forward for our members’ enthusiastic contributions, support and suggestions on how we can better this effort. Your suggestions form a valuable part in this process.

I realize the utmost faith and confidence you have placed in me when you selected me to take up the mantle and responsibility of Honorary Secretary General in Central IAP.

Now it is my turn to live up to your expectations and deliver the goods. I always believe IAP is primarily for MEMBERS even while reaffirming our commitment towards the cause of children of our country. I promise to continue working with you as a grassroots IAPian, but at the same time privileged to represent your cause at the national level Together let us build up an IAP where every member is reached and heard. Let us pledge to nurture this as a platform where we foster academics with camaraderie and dedicate ourselves for the welfare of the children of our country.

Jai IAP!!

Jai Hind!!

 Sincere Regards,
