Greetings from SAARC Academy of Ophthalmology!
We are in midst of very critical period of a global corona Pandemic which has affected our life, economy and broken the back bone of healthcare of the mightiest or smallest in the world. We as a first line worker have been heavily engaged in doing our duty to save the lives of many engulfed by this dangerous evil.
I also pay my tribute to those colleagues who lost their lives while serving during this pandemic.
In view of these and after having received mails and Whatsapp from many council members including Prof Malla our President, Prof Ava who is our Past President Prof Imtiaz, Prof Saliya and many others we are postponing this year SAARC Academy of Ophthalmology Conference. We are working out with hotel management to decide the new date, Next Year preferably in June if it suits to each one of us.
New date will be announced very soon. I know it’s a difficult decision but it seems it is prudent to decide now only so that each one is geared to take on this meeting next Yr with new vigour and rich scientific contributions.
With kind regards and wishing you and your family a good health and happy home.
Prof. (Dr.) Rajvardhan Azad
Secretary General SAO
