Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I am delighted to announce that this year’s Joint International Tropical Medicine Meeting (JITMM 2022) will be held as a hybrid conference at the 5-star Montien Hotel Surawong in Bangkok, Thailand, 7-9 December 2022!

In the past two years, JITMM has been held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, with effective COVID vaccination programs worldwide and further easing of travel requirements in Thailand and elsewhere, we are pleased to host JITMM as a hybrid conference with the support of our co-organizers; Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), Chulalongkorn University, Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU), and SEAMEO TropMed Network.

The hybrid platform will allow participants to attend JITMM 2022 onsite and virtually for those unable to travel internationally, providing an inclusive platform for participants to network, update and exchange knowledge, and develop collaborations with participants with similar research interests.

With the theme “Leveraging the Pandemic Experience: Our Tropical Medicine Community Rejuvenated”, JITMM 2022 will host various sessions that will highlight the activities, discoveries, lessons-learned, and opportunities related to the pandemic. The Meeting will also discuss the future of tropical medicine and public health research post-pandemic. For this unique event, I invite you to join JITMM 2022, 7-9 December in Bangkok. The JITMM Organizing Committee greatly looks forward to your participation, and we are very excited to welcome you to Bangkok, both in person and virtually!

Assoc. Prof. Weerapong Phumratanaprapin
