Wishing all of you a very Happy New Year 2023.
May the New Year bring abundant happiness, joy, and good health to you, your family, and all your near and dear ones.
IAPHD had evolved into a very vibrant association and this evolution has also raised expectations. We have seen that in the active and record registrations of about 300 in the 14th IAPHD Convention at Varanasi. This showcases the strength of our association. The scientific program was very well laid out and it received appreciation from India and abroad alike. The quality of scientific work showcased in the convention showed our core strength in research.
After having been associated with IAPHD for almost two decades, I can say that the quality of research being done now is of global standards. The best part about this development is that this is not confined only to a few centers, but is being carried out by passionate researchers spread all over the country. Collaborative research is the way forward and this area is gaining strength in IAPHD. The work done by the collaborative research groups is going to stimulate many more to get involved so that we can find answers to questions unique to us. With many young, bright, and aspiring students showing keen interest in our specialty, I can see this happening soon.
I am also very happy to quote that JIAPHD has improved leaps and bounds, especially in regard to online submission, its appearance, and the quality of articles. Thanks to all the relentless efforts of all the members of the JIAPHD Editorial Board, especially the Editor.
For the all-round inclusive development of any association, it is important to get constant feedback from the stakeholders. I would look forward to your active participation and please send me your suggestions, comments, and critique at [email protected]
Long live IAPHD.
