The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) congratulates Professor Malcolm Hopwood on his appointment to the role of President-Elect of the Asian Federation of Psychiatric Associations (AFPA).
‘Being elected to the role of President-Elect of AFPA by a group of my esteemed peers is a great honour,’ said Professor Hopwood.
‘By bringing together psychiatrists from all over Asia and the South Pacific AFPA plays an important role in advancing the profession of psychiatry in Asia, and I look forward to contributing to the great work of this association over the next two years,’ Professor Hopwood said.
The AFPA was founded in 2002 with the goal of forming a network of Asian psychiatrists to help address the barriers to psychiatric care that many people throughout the Asia Pacific face and to promote the highest standards of psychiatric care in the region.
Professor Hopwood will serve as President-Elect of AFPA from 2017- 2019. He will then begin his two year term as President of AFPA in 2019.
