Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the Joint International Tropical Medicine Meeting (JITMM), Southeast Asia’s largest Tropical Medicine conference.

The Meeting theme this year, “Innovation, Translation, and Impact in Tropical Medicine” will highlight the recent advancements and developments in tropical medicine. The theme is also an invitation to all researchers from various disciplines to take the spotlight and present the innovation, translation, and impact in their respective research efforts.

Each year, the Faculty of Tropical Medicine and its co-organizers host this event, giving researchers, policy-makers, doctors, scientists, public-health professionals, and students the opportunity to meet and learn from one another, for the improved health of people living in, and traveling through, the Tropics.

The Meeting program will cover a large range of tropical diseases, especially those endemic to Asia. These include malaria; dengue; helminthic infections; bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic diseases; and the fields of disease epidemiology, drug development, education, biology, and many more.

Every year we would like to strongly encourage Tropical Medicine professionals from the ASEAN Community to join the meeting. Your participation will add valued diversity and greater insight from endemic areas. To help facilitate your participation, the fees for those from the ASEAN Community will be the same as for residents of Thailand, a discount of nearly 50%.

I invite you to join us and take part in three days of interesting and rewarding sessions and interactions. The meeting will be held in central Bangkok, so there is also plenty to see and do in your free time. Our website,, has all the details you need to book your place, submit your abstract and find out more about the event.

We greatly look forward to seeing you all at JITMM2018 in Bangkok, 12- 14 December 2018!

Yours sincerely,

Assoc. Prof. Pratap Singhasivanon
Chair, Organizing Committee, JITMM2018
