2014 Preparatory meeting

announcement of the Establishment of
Federation of Asian Organizations for Radiation Oncology (FARO)
It is our great pleasure to make a public announcement of the establishment of the Federation of Asian Organizations for Radiation Oncology (FARO). This is a new and exciting framework in which collaboration can be developed among Asian radiation oncologists. FARO intends to function as a federation of radiation oncology societies in Asia and aims to improve the basic level of radiotherapy for the benefit of the patients in the Asian region.
In the second preparatory meeting of FARO, which was held on November 3, 2014 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, societies of 11 Asian countries officially agreed to the establishment of FARO. These 11 societies which represent Asian nations are radiation oncology societies or oncology societies that include radiation oncology, and they agreed that FARO would first focus on the academic/scientific exchange and human resource development. The first official meeting of FARO will be held in May, 2015 in Kyoto. The followings are the participating societies:
   Bangladesh:Bangladesh Society of Radiation Oncologists (BSRO)
   China:Chinese Society of Therapeutic Radiation Oncology (CSTRO)
   India:Association of Radiation Oncologists of India (AROI)
   Indonesia:Indonesian Radiation Oncology Society (IROS)
   Japan:Japanese Society for Radiation Oncology (JASTRO)
   Korea:Korean Society for Radiation Oncology (KOSRO)
   Malaysia:Malaysian Oncological Society (MOS)
   Philippines:Philippine Radiation Oncology Society (PROS)
   Singapore:Singapore Radiological Society (SRS)
   Sri Lanka:Sri Lanka College of Oncologists (SLCO)
   Thailand:Thai Society of Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (THASTRO)
 In the preparatory meeting, the first Council Officers were elected: Prof. Masahiro Hiraoka (JASTRO) as the President, Prof. Ramesh Bilimagga (AROI) as the Vice President, Prof. Takashi Nakano (JASTRO) as the Secretary General, Prof. Xianshu Gao (CSRO) as the Treasurer, Prof. Soehartati Gondhowiardjo (IROS) as the President-Elect, and Dr. Tomoaki Tamaki (JASTRO) as the Deputy Secretary General.
 The cooperation among the participating societies is essential for the future growth of FARO because the level of radiotherapy in the Asian region varies significantly. The FARO members would like to sincerely request significant support from partners of various fields so that the activity of FARO will lead to the improvement of radiotherapy within and beyond the Asian region.
