PENSA 2021


Dear PENSA Community;

According to the Covid-19 pandemic worldwide which affects the health and lives of people as well as the health care professions, our main interest might be focused how to optimize the prevention and patients care. Taking into consideration the health and safety of our members and potential attendances, the policy of each country about traveling and quarantine, the unpredictable situation in the coming months, and the strength and weakness of physical meeting versus virtual meeting. The PENSA Executive Committee has made a decision to postpone the 21st PENSA 2021 Congress from October 29th-31st, 2021 to October 14th-16th, 2021. The venue of the meeting will be still at the BITEC in Bangkok, Thailand.

The detail of the program and timeline of the congress will be announced soon in

We pray for those who suffered directly and indirectly from the Covid-19 pandemic and hope that world will evolve to the new normal better situation soon.


Best Regards,

Dr. Winai Ungpinitpong

President of 21st PENSA 2021

The Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Society of Asia (PENSA)

The Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Society of Asia (PENSA) is a society for Asian physicians and personnel working in nutritional support, The society was founded on May 6, 1995 at a meeting in Chiang Rai, Thailand, by a group of physicians from Japan, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Pakistan and Thailand. It was founded to provide a forum in which Physicians practicing nutritional support for hospitalized patients could address and exchange clinical experiences and scientific data in nutritional sciences that are unique to this region. Since that time the society has experienced great growth. The Congress of PENSA was a special academic meeting for people practicing nutritional support.
