The meeting will focus on Gynaecologic Cancers in particular endometrial, endocervical, and ovarian cancers and on cervical screening. Cancer of the endometrium is the most common gynaecologic and ovarian cancers ranks fifth as a cause of cancer deaths among women globally, although it causes more death than any other cancer of the female genital tract. Cervical screening saves thousands of lives every year and we will have lectures from international and national experts to talk on current cervical screening strategies and changes in laboratory practices with introduction of primary HPV testing.
For this conference, we have curated a diverse range of globally recognised speakers, and networking opportunities to help you expand your knowledge, gain new insights, and connect with like-minded individuals. From thought-provoking keynote sessions to interactive discussions on newer molecular and genomic diagnostic techniques led by experts in this field. We have designed the agenda to ensure that you leave feeling inspired and empowered.
In line with global health initiatives, the meeting has been jointly organised with our partner societies, the British Association of Gynaecologic Pathologists, the Malaysian Society of Cytology, and the Society of Cytology Singapore.

Welcome Message from Sarawak State Pathologist
On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to welcome all doctors, doctor trainees, medical assistants, nurses, and medical laboratory technologists to join this conference, themed as “Updates in Gynaecologic Pathology – The Ultimate Adventure Trail Guide”. This is a four-day event divided into two parts, first two days in Singapore, and next two days in Kuching, Sarawak. There is a choice to attend the conference in either Singapore or Kuching, or in both cities. The best of course would be to join the entire conference, as we have different interesting topics for each day, and there is even a special day dedicated to cytopathology for the conference in Kuching.
We think that this conference will provide an excellent opportunity for acquiring an overview of recent advances in gynaecological pathology and cytopathology, through our invited eminent speakers who are experts of the respective fields. The issues covered will be of relevance and interest to everyone, from medical laboratory technologists and scientists to nurses and doctors. This conference could also serve as a great platform for networking with doctors and allied health professionals from different countries.
We would like to thank the organizing committee for organizing this inaugural event, and especially to Dr Angela Chong, who has worked extremely hard to make possible this very first collaboration between Malaysian and Singaporean pathologists. We look forward to meeting you in Kuching, Sarawak, a unique place with rich multi-ethnic culture, vast geographical landscapes, and impressive biodiversity. We hope all the delegates will have an enriching experience here. Welcome to the land of hornbills!
