Thank you for attending

On behalf of the Organising Committee, we would like to thank everyone who attended 5th ISPE Asian Conference on Pharmacoepidemiology in Bengaluru from 26-28 October 2023.

Welcome to ACPE 2023 from the ISPE President

On behalf of ISPE I welcome you to the 15th ISPE Asian Conference on Pharmacoepidemiology. The ISPE Asian Conference on Pharmacoepidemiology brings together outstanding researchers, regulators, clinicians, policy makers, students and key stakeholders, to showcase and discuss the latest advances in pharmacoepidemiology in the Asian-Pacific region. The conference provides the opportunity to discuss innovative methods, share research findings and learnings, and develop new networks and collaborations supporting the safe and effective use of medicines across Asia.

While ISPE is recognised internationally for improving health outcomes via pharmacoepidemiology research, education and policy, it is our people, the ISPE community, that are the heart of the organisation. For those of you new to ISPE, I encourage you not only share in the many keynote, symposia, presented paper and poster sessions but also to also take the opportunity throughout the conference to meet new people, build your own pharmacoepidemiology networks and become part of the ISPE community.

My congratulations and thanks to the ISPE ACPE Program Committee, Local Host Committee and Steering Group members for their leadership and commitment in putting together an outstanding conference and social program.

I welcome you all and wish you all a rewarding and enjoyable 15th ISPE ACPE meeting in Bengaluru.

With kindest regards
