Report of IPFA 2nd Asia Workshop, March 2017
IPFA was delighted and privileged to hold its 2nd Asia Workshop on Plasma Quality and Supply in Yogyakarta, Indonesia and reflected the focus of IPFA to promote and support the increased collection of high quality plasma from National and regional communities as a critical step towards improving patient access to essential PDMPs. The meeting was co-organised with and hosted by the Indonesian Association of Transfusion Medicine (IATM). This partnership ensured that the programme was not only relevant, instructive and informative for delegates from the country, the region and wider international colleagues but also generously provided a taste of Indonesian culture and hospitality.
The meeting was attended by approximately 180 delegates from 29 countries – both from the Asia region and the wider international community. The decision to convene the meeting in this important region was, therefore clearly justified.
We warmly invite you to read the Workshop report.
