APTHC Conference 2016

The 11th Asia Pacific Travel Health Conference (APTHC 2016) was successfully held in Kathmandu, Nepal on 2-5 March, 2016​. The society was delighted to host nearly 400 participants from 40 different countries who found the scientific program both stimulating and enriching.

Attendees enjoyed adjunct activities such as the pre-conference workshop on High-Altitude Illness, the Paediatric Traveler workshop and the post-conference heritage walk. The exciting scientific program featured more than 50 regional, international and also local speakers over various plenaries, symposia, destination and ABC workshops. Free communications and posters opportunities were offered and best presentation awards were presented at the Closing Ceremony.

This year again, ISTM organized the Certificate in Travel Health® Examination prior to the conference. The examination was taken by more than 50 participants including several local nurses.

We look forward to seeing you in Bangkok, Thailand in 2018.
