Dear Obstetric Anaesthesiologists,
The Association of Obstetric Anaesthesiologists (AOA) India is an exclusive platform and forum to enhance the standards of maternal care for our staggering and varied pregnant population across the country. I am extremely honoured and humbled to be serving as Honorary Secretary AOA India. I have the privilege to be part of an efficient team being ably headed by Prof. Kajal Jain and a dynamic group of Governing Council Members and Executives, each of whom is an expert in the field of obstetric anaesthesia.
During my tenure, we would aim to create awareness, formulate guidelines, and network with all of you on all pertinent issues relating to safe obstetric analgesia, anaesthesia, and critical care. In this context, I seek your active participation in all our academic endeavours.
Obstetric anaesthesia is indeed the bread and butter of anaesthesia practice across the length and breadth of the country. Hence, I exhort all of you to join AOA India as life members thereby strengthening the society and contributing towards healthier and safe motherhood. All life members of AOA will have the honour of receiving the official journal of AOA India, the Journal of Obstetric Anaesthesia and Critical Care. We shall be embarking on multiple academic webinars, masterclasses, workshops, safe obstetric anaesthesia, and critical care courses along with our annual national conference. This will empower each of us to become comprehensive perioperative obstetric physicians leading the multidisciplinary teams of obstetricians and neonatologists in your respective healthcare setups.
Let us all together aim to create excellence in all we do for our mothers.
AOA India Honorary Secretary
Professor & Head,
