IAP Karnataka State Branch

Recounting the illustrious past of IAP Karnataka rekindles pleasant past memories of legendary names such as Dr B R Rama Rao who laid the foundation of Indian Academy of Pediatrics Karnataka State branch in 1975 and continued to strengthen it during its infancy and early childhood as its President till 1982. The office of IAP Karnataka was established at Mangalore in 1985. From 1983 onwards great stalwarts like Dr Bopaiah, Dr D G Benekappa, Dr Ankegowda and Dr Indira Amla and others carried it through its late childhood.

The champion of breast-feeding Dr Nirmal Kesari and the torchbearer of Pediatric Pulmonology Dr H Parmesh nurtured the organization through its adolescence. Dr Sanjeev Rai contributed by managing Karnataka Pediatric Journal. Dr Santosh Soans and Dr Srinath Mugali and Dr G V Basavraj propelled IAP Karnataka into adulthood and onto the national scene.

Though it was a herculean task in the initial stages the sincere efforts of some committed members in the past few decades have helped IAP Karnataka to be reckoned as a formidable IAP state branch. Beginning with the first national level conference (PEDICON) hosted at Mangalore in 1975, Karnataka IAP has so far hosted 5 national (PEDICON) conferences. The Pandemic created unprecedented challenges for everyone but IAP Karnataka has continued the academic activities with the same vigil under the leadership of Honorary secretary general 2021 Dr Basavraj.

Presidential Action Plan - 2022

The sustainable development goals 2030 are based on the principles of “leaving no one behind” while working towards good health and well being for all. Our team this year has therefore planned to reach out to the children from Child care Institutes from the state of Karnataka to ensure that the children from these institutes get equal opportunities to grow towards their full potential in growth and development. The program ROSHAN (Reach out, Share and Nurture) is planned to reach out to at least one CCI from each district and develop a relationship of trust and empathy with the children.

Neonatal resuscitation skills are essential for all health care providers who are involved in the delivery of newborns. This year we have joined hands with the Karnataka state association of Obstetrics and gynaecologist(KSOGA) to train the birth attenders from private nursing homes especially empowering the Obstetricians with the skill of basic newborn resuscitation.

President's Message

Dr. Ashok R Datar
President 2021

Every minute of my more than 4 decades of medical practice has been stimulating, invigorating and at times formidable, strenuous and grueling. Yet when I look back, I see that it has indeed been a satisfying experience, however, I wish I had spent a little more time on life experiences such as spending quality time with family, traveling or on my hobby.…… My suggestion to my younger colleagues is to balance work, family and holidays to get the best out of life.
