Dear Indians & child Health Stakeholders,

As the Secretary of our esteemed Academy of Pediatrics, Vadodara, it’s my privilege to extend warm greetings and invaluable insights to all caring parents, guardians, and individuals invested in children’s well-being.

Our commitment to Pediatric care extends beyond conventional methods. We actively integrate advancements in technology, including Artificial Intelligence in Pediatrics, to enhance diagnostics and treatment, ensuring precise and effective care for our young patients.

Addressing Congenital defects requires proactive measures and comprehensive care. Our association emphasizes early detection, intervention, and supportive measures to improve outcomes and quality of life for children with congenital conditions.

Recognizing developmental milestones and early detection of Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are vital components of our practice. Timely identification and intervention significantly impact a child’s developmental trajectory. We advocate for regular assessments and support services to aid in early intervention and support for children with ASD.

A child’s well-being is intricately linked to the mother’s health. We emphasize not only good physical health but also prioritize the mental, social, and emotional well-being of mothers. Supporting mothers in their journey contributes profoundly to a child’s overall health and development.

Antenatal and Postnatal counseling on breastfeeding, Immunization, Regular check-ups for newborns, Active resuscitation for newborns, and Comprehensive Vaccination coverage are the cornerstones of our approach. These initiatives ensure a solid foundation for our children’s health.

Moreover, our association remains dedicated to enhancing our activities, fostering continuous learning, and professional development among our members. We strive to undertake initiatives that not only upgrade our association but also make us proud contributors to the field of Pediatric care.

We encourage you to explore our association’s activities, join us in our endeavors, and together, let’s pave the path for a healthier, happier future for our children.
