Dear Senior’s and Colleagues
It is a pleasure for me to take over as the 5th Secretary of ISPGHAN. ISPGHAN has so far been riding on its solid growth which was sculpted by the hard work of our movement’s stalwarts for last many years. Now it is time for us to take charge and do some value addition on our part.
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams,” said Eleanor Roosevelt. Let us put our minds together and look into the future with creative strategies for meeting emerging challenges. I aspire that by the end of this decade ISPGHAN becomes a truly international and globally recognised organization. These two years will be stepping stone towards the long term goal.
We need your full involvement and participation. Let us herald a resurgent ISPGHAN with new vision and enthusiasm. I express my best wishes to you all and seek your continued co-operation and participation in ISPGHAN activities at all times.
Stay Safe and Safe Lives

  • Enhance  structure and quality of training (fellowship programme) of youngsters.
  • Producing “Practice guidelines” on the topics not yet covered, involving a blend of various seniors and youngsters in this field. 
  • Constitute an Academic / Research committee to initiate research activity in various centres in the country.
  • Enhance the visibility of our journal and improve the quality  through  expert committee.
  • Conduct  annual conference where on the first day a galaxy of international experts are invited (online if necessary) to appraise our Pediatric Gastroenterologists, Hepatologists on the recent developments. Of-course the 2nd day would be dedicated to imparting knowledge to the  Pediatricians. Plan 2 mid term CMEs in different zones, one of which would be theme based.
  • Attempt to increase the awareness amongst public/parents on recognition of this speciality and need to seek opinion from Pediatric Gastroenterologists,  Hepatologists whenever available.
