The Malaysian Society of Parasitology and Tropical Medicine-founded in 1964 will be celebrating its Golden Jubilee in March 2014, in collaboration with the 6th ASEAN Congress of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology. An International Congress will be held in Kuala Lumpur from 5-7 March 2014. The theme for the congress is: GLOBAL CHALLENGES IN TROPICAL DISEASES: Bridging Gaps and Building Partnerships.
The first ASEAN Congress of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology (2004) was held in Malaysia by the MSPTM and has since been held in Indonesia (2006), Thailand (2008), Singapore (2010), and Philippines (2012). The Congress brings together researchers and program managers to increase understanding of tropical diseases.
