Friends: It gives me great pleasure to invite you to the 9th Asian Regional Congress Headache (ARCH2022) . This stand-alone ARCH2022 will be a two-day VIRTUAL access to all who are interested in headache disorders.
The Asian Regional Consortium of Headache (ARCH) is the key professional organization for healthcare providers and researchers interested in headache medicine in Asia and Oceania. The establishment of ARCH has had a significant impact to the exchange of thoughts about headache disorders in Asia, where nearly two thirds of the world population live.
We are delighted to offer you an interesting scientific programme with large number of global and local experts with ample amount regional representation speaking on diverse topics.
I am thankful to Prof Tissa Wijeratne from Australia who has assisted me in the Planning and Execution of ARCH 2022. Please share your ideas and suggestions as ARCH2022 is for you and your patients.
