About the AOPMC

The Asian and Oceanian Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Congress (AOPMC) occurs every two years as a forum to further develop the field of Movement Disorders in the region. It will be held April 12-14, 2019 in Hangzhou.

Previous Congresses have been held in the following countries or regions:

  • Singapore (2007)
  • India (2009)
  • Taiwan (2011)
  • Thailand (2014)
  • Philippines (2016)
  • Hangzhou (2019)

Primary Organizers

The International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society’s Asian and Oceanian Section (MDS-AOS) is the main organizer of the Congress.  Formed in June 2005, the section reaches out to doctors, researchers and healthcare professionals in Asia and Oceania.  Eight national organizations have formal relationships with the Section as Affiliate Member Societies.


The purpose of the AOPMC is consistent with the objectives of the MDS-AOS, which include:

  • Facilitate communication between clinicians and researchers in the region
  • Disseminate updated knowledge about movement disorders
  • Improve quality of life and independence of movement disorders patients and carers
  • Promote research and facilitate research collaborations in movement disorders
  • Expose clinicians, researchers and healthcare professionals in the region to movement disorders initiatives and in so doing, encourage their membership in the MDS-AOS

Target Audience

The target participants of the 6th AOPMC are doctors, researchers, and healthcare professionals from the region, many of whom will not have had the opportunity to attend the International MDS Congresses as a result of distance, costs and/or visa constraints.  Among these participants will be many opinion leaders and key movement disorders specialists from the region.
