Zone 16 has the following 11 Member Societies: Bangladesh Association of Psychiatrists, Indian Association for Social Psychiatry, Indian Psychiatric Society, Indonesian Psychiatric Association, Malaysian Psychiatric Association, Myanmar Medico-Psychological Society, Psychiatrists’ Association of Nepal, Philippine Psychiatric Association, Singapore Psychiatric Association, Sri Lanka College of Psychiatrists and Psychiatric Association of Thailand. It is the largest Zone in Region 4 of WPA. All the member societies are active and are holding their annual conferences regularly. We are making efforts to organize a new member society in Bhutan as well. The tragedy that struck Nepal in the form of a devastating earthquake killing thousands of innocent people has been a big blow. The member societies in the region and the international community have rallied for disaster relief in Nepal. But lot more needs to be done.
The biggest event to take place in the Zone is the forthcoming WPA Regional Congress, Kochi, India Sept 25-27, 2015. We are making all efforts to make this an outstanding success.
