Introduction

The Asia-Pacific Association for Gynecologic Endoscopy and Minimally Invasive Therapy (APAGE) represents over 15 associations in the gynecologic field worldwide.

APAGE provides various scientific and educational activities for doctors; for example, workshops for Laparoscopic Gynecologic Oncology Surgery & Hands-on Animal Workshop, Single Incision Surgery and Robotic Surgery.

The APAGE Annual Congress is also the largest gynecologic meeting in the Asia-Pacific region. It also holds congresses in conjunction with its affiliated societies, which are becoming increasingly popular within this region.

From 2012, we will publish its official journal, Gynecology and Minimally Invasive Therapy GMIT, for offering doctors in this region an option to share their latest academic research achievements.
