Asia presents some unique challenges in RB care. We believe that coming together as a group with shared goals will strengthen our resolve to overcome those challenges, and help us build a community to unitedly fight RB in the region.
As a preliminary activity, supported by the Rb-NET, a virtual AsRbG symposium is planned, in which several RB centers from Asian countries will present clinical cases. The goal is to bring everyone together on a single platform and encourage wide participation.
