The aim of the journal will be to communicate the results of original research in India and elsewhere, in a variety of clinical and scientific specialties concerned with diagnosis and therapy of fetal abnormalities. All activities that promote health of the fetus will be carried out. The primary focus will of course on reporting the tremendous work being done in this area in India and other developing countries.

    Background: There is increasing demand for prenatal diagnosis of genetic disorders and malformations in India. Recent advances in technologies like ultrasound and molecular techniques enable prenatal diagnosis of a wide range of disorders. However facilities for prenatal diagnosis and management are inadequate in India. There is a need to form a society to increase awareness among the doctors, health care providers and public administrators about prenatal diagnosis and to stimulate the establishment of these facilities and train manpower to provide these services.

     

    Aims and Objectives: 

    The aims and objectives of the society shall be as under:

    a)      To constitute a forum of physicians, scientists, patients / parents and others interested in prenatal diagnosis and management of congenital disorders and genetic diseases

    b)      To advance and promote the science and practice in the area of prenatal diagnosis.

    c)       To explore, collect and spread information on recent advances and newer techniques relating to prenatal diagnosis.

    d)      To hold conferences, refresher courses, CMEs, orations, public lectures, seminars, workshops and exhibitions relating to prenatal diagnosis. 

    e)      To print, publish, exhibit periodicals, books, pamphlets, posters for the promotion of the objectives of the Society. 

    f)       Formulate views and make recommendations regarding i) teaching of concepts of prenatal diagnosis to undergraduates, postgraduates and medical practitioners; ii) Services for prenatal diagnosis and management of congenital malformations and prenatal diagnosis of various disorders

    g)      To interact with the Government of India regarding rules and regulations relating to prenatal diagnosis of various disorders. 

    h)      To develop and extend cooperation between similar societies in India and abroad.

    i)        To undertake all such activities as are incidental and conducive to the objectives of the society.
