Message from Professor Dinesh Bhugra - new WPA President-Elect
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their help and support in my election to the post of President-elect of the World Psychiatric Association. I am grateful to Professor Herrman for her contribution to the WPA over the years and for a clean election.
It is a matter of great privilege for getting elected to the post of Secretary for Sections in the recent WPA elections. I am grateful to all Member Societies for having confidence in me and giving me a chance to work for the WPA.
At the end of my period as WPA Secretary for Sections...
My main objective when elected World Psychiatric Association (WPA) Secretary for Sections six years ago was to consolidate the work of our Sections through initiatives to enhance their activities and visibility.
The beginnings of the World Psychiatric Association in 1950, as an Association for the Organization of World Congresses of Psychiatry, with Jean Delay as its President and Henry Ey as its Secretary General, must be appreciated within the context of world events and developments in the health field.
