The Asia Pacific Travel Health Society (APTHS) is a regional network of travel medicine practitioners that promotes and protects the health of travelers by advancing travel medicine and related disciplines in the Asia Pacific region.
​The main activities of the APTHS are through its website, ad-hoc travel medicine courses/meetings in the region, and its biennial conferences.

The society was formed in 2000, during the Bali APTHC3, in response to the growing regional interest in travel medicine and to act as a focal point to channel regional initiatives and energies. This newly developing entity of travel medicine in Asia has already seen successful meetings focusing on travelers health.

The last three conferences have been highly successful: APTHC 2012 in Singapore, APTHC 2014 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and recently APTHC 2016 in Kathmandu, Nepal. The society is already back at work to guarantee an even more attractive and enriching conference in Bangkok, Thailand in 2018.
