Message from Vice-President of India

The Vice President of India is the second-highest constitutional office in India after the President.

Our Honorable Vice-President Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu, has sent a message addressed to all emergency physicians, emergency nurses and emergency paramedics who are working in India, on the occasion of ACEM 2019.





I am happy to know that the Society of Emergency Medicine India (SEMI), is organizing the 10th Asian Conference of Emergency Medicine ACEM 2019 from November 7 -10, 2019 at The Leela Ambience Convention Hotel, Delhi.

Emergency Care and Emergency Medicine play a vital role in the health care system. The initial management and stabilization of a patient in need of emergency care is truly a specialty on its own and requires intensive training and resources. Very often, the availability of quality emergency care makes the difference between life and death.

I am sure, being one of the largest professional societies of Emergency Medicine, SEMI would play an important role in making the emergency care in our country more robust and professionally competent.

I am happy to note that several leading Emergency Care professionals of India and abroad would be participating in the conference and will deliberate and discuss various facets of this emerging field of Medicine.

I extend my greetings and congratulations to the organizers and the participants and wish the event all success.

(M. Venkaiah Naidu)

New Delhi, 17th October, 2019
