About UAA

UAA’s 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. Currently, the UAA has 25 member associations representing more than 25,000 urologists in Asia.

Apart from the UAA Congress, which is now held annually, the UAA helps to run various workshops and seminars in the region. This is done through the Asian School of Urology (ASU) and the affiliated subspecialty societies, the Asian Society of Endourology (ASE), the Asian Society of Female Urology (ASFU), the Asian Association for Urinary Infections and STDs (AAUS), the Asian Society of Uro-oncology (APSU) and the Asia-Pacific Society of Reconstructive Urologists and Andrological Surgeons (AP-SRUAS).

The UAA works closely with International urological bodies such as the International Consultations on Urological Diseases (ICUD), the Society International Urology (SIU), The American Urological Association (AUA), the European Association of Urology (EAU) and the Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand (USANZ).
