From 1984 to 1995, it was the official journal of the Hong Kong Paediatric Society, and published twice a year. The Hong Kong College of Paediatricians was founded in 1991 with the primary objective to accredit and organize training programmes for paediatricians, to certify specialists in the discipline and to ensure a high standard of paediatric practice for the community. In 1996, the Hong Kong College of Paediatricians and the Hong Kong Paediatric Society joined forces to produce a single paediatric journal for Hong Kong, entitled "Hong Kong Journal of Paediatrics - new series".
