The UAA was founded in August 1990 in Fukuoka, Japan. Its main objective is to promote Urology in Asia and to improve the care of Urology patients in the region, which has 60% of the world’s population. Originally an association of individual members, it was restructured to become an association of member regions so as to achieve its goals in more cost effective ways. However, a decision has recently been taken to again initiate individual membership along with association memberships in order to promote a sense of belonging among the members. The UAA 2017 objective is to create a state of the art scientific program to foster knowledge sharing and exchange experiences in a series of panel sessions, discussion forums and symposia, highlighting innovations and developments in various urological areas, including uro-oncology, voiding dysfunction, stone management etc. Also proposal on guidelines & consensus statements on some common urological problems in Asia will be presented, with aims to encourage close collaboration within Asian countries.
