History
The Pakistan Medical Association was established in 1948 in Dacca. It was inaugurated by Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. It was later moved to Karachi to provide opportunity for its rapid development and growth, which became its permanent headquarters. In Karachi a detailed Constitution was drafted and approved. The Association was registered under the Registration of Societies Act XXI of 1960 and branches were established all over Pakistan. The first All-Pakistan Medical Conference was inaugurated by Mr. Liaquat Ali Khan at Karachi. A beginning was made by inviting medical delegates from different countries of the world to attend our Biennial Conference. A tradition was laid down for international cooperation which has since grown with the passage of time. It was during this early period that Sir Alexander Flemming, the discoverer of Penicillin, visited Pakistan as the guest of the Pakistan Medical Association. The first honorary membership of the Association was conferred on him. Sir Alexander Flemming gave a talk on “How Pakistani Children can grow to be the Research Workers of tomorrow” at Rainbow Court Y.M.C.A. In 1951 the PMA  started its publication Journal of Pakistan Medical Association (JPMA) as an official organ of the Pakistan Medical Association.
