Dr. Qazi Muhammad Wasiq, Treasurer of the Pakistan Medical Association, was installed as the 39th President of the CMAAO for 2022-23.
The General Assembly adopted the CMAAO Karachi Statement on Health Care in COVID-19 Pandemic.

In Pakistan, where the 2022 CMAAO General Assembly was held, one-third of the land was submerged, and many people suffered due to flood damage caused by multiple factors such as record heavy rains, landslides due to abnormal weather, and the melting of mountain glaciers due to global warming. The Pakistan Medical Association set up a relief camp at the PMA office for the flood victims.
At the 2022 CMAAO General Assembly, it was unanimously decided that the CMAAO would send a donation of $30,000 to the Pakistan Medical Association to help victims of the devastating floods in Pakistan.
