The 1st South Asia and Asia Pacific International Congress on Diabetes in Pregnancy, hosted by The 1st DIP Asia-Pacific (DIPAP) Symposium on Diabetes, Hypertension, Metabolic Syndrome and Pregnancy (DIPAP) and The South Asia Initiative for Diabetes in Pregnancy (SAIDIP) aims to bring increased attention and encourage research on diabetes in pregnancy within the South Asia region and replicate over a decade of success of the Diabetes in Pregnancy Study Group in India.
This DIPAP-SAIDIP Congress aims to raise awareness of the links between hyperglycemia and poor maternal and fetal outcomes as well as to the future health risks to mother and offspring and demand a clearly defined global health agenda to tackle this issue, and to provide guidance for testing, management and care of women with GDM regardless of resource setting as outlined in the FIGO document and to inspire action by showcasing ongoing initiatives on diabetes in pregnancy in the region and globally. Additionally, controversial topics and use of new technologies in perinatal medicine will be discussed in detail. This will allow participants to formulate a modus operandi through evidence provided by the presenting experts.
