  About the APAGE
The Asia-Pacific Association for Gynecologic Endoscopy and Minimally Invasive Therapy (APAGE) represents over 15 associations in the gynecologic field worldwide.
APAGE provides various scientific and educational activities for doctors; for example, workshops for Laparoscopic Gynecologic Oncology Surgery & Hands-on Animal Workshop, Single Incision Surgery and Robotic Surgery.
The APAGE Annual Congress is also the largest gynecologic meeting in the Asia-Pacific region. It also holds congresses in conjunction with its affiliated societies, which are becoming increasingly popular within this region. Since 2012, APAGE has published its official journal, Gynecology and Minimally Invasive Therapy (GMIT) for offering doctors in this region an option to share their latest academic research achievements.
Over the past 16 years, APAGE has gathered a number of inspiring topics and expertise since our goals are to provide a platform for the gynecologist who desired to enhance their surgical skills and knowledge. Gynecologic endoscopy and minimally invasive therapy is a field that develops fast, always has the newest technologies and equipment. As for the continuous research and practical practice, Laparoscopic gynecologic surgery has gained popularity due to developments in illumination and instrumentation that led to the emergence of laparoscopy in the past decades as a credible diagnostic as well as a therapeutic intervention. APAGE is horned to share some of the responsibilities to make contributions to both the medical field and the public. The progress is non-stopped; we welcome everyone to join us, to make APAGE an acknowledged association.
