Abstract

Abstract Set up in 1989, the Asia Pacific Association of Medical Toxicology (APAMT) was established to promote all aspects of chemical safety, poison control, and treatment, within the Asia Pacific region. In pursuance of this general goal, the association proposed to establish and maintain cooperation with governmental organizations, professional bodies, and other groups or individuals concerned with toxicological problems, in order to facilitate action designed to reduce or eliminate risks and optimize treatment or management of poisoning; to assemble studies, observations, and data essential to the understanding of poisoning; to promote and conduct scientific research and investigations for the study of poisoning; to supply information and advice in this field through information centers in the Asia Pacific region; to foster professional education in the field of toxicology; and to collaborate with international institutions and particularly the World Health Organization. The APAMT constitution was adopted in 1992. The APAMT Secretariat is located at the National Poison Centre, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Penang, Malaysia. The Presidency of the Association is elected biennially. The association meets at an Annual Congress. A Web site and e-learning are ongoing activities.
