|The Malaysian Society of Parasitology & Tropical Medicine, Business Events Sarawak (BESarawak) and Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) will be the hosts of the 21st International Congress for Tropical Medicine and Malaria (ICTMM 2024).|
Set to take place between 19-23 September 2024 at Borneo Convention Centre Kuching, the event is expected to attract more than 2,000 scientists, physicians, researchers, policymakers and international authorities to discuss current tropical medicine topics.
Themed “Global Responses and Interdisciplinary Research Towards Eliminating Tropical Diseases”, the congress will help promote international collaboration in the field, especially between the Sarawak Research and Development Council, the Imperial College London and the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute in Basel, Switzerland.
“As Malaysia and Borneo’s legacy capital for business events, we are working closely with the congress committee to help achieve their legacy impact”, said Amelia Roziman, BESarawak’s CEO. “Sarawak’s business events industry places high value on collaborations and we hope that by being the host destination for ICTMM, the congress will be the key to Malaysia and Asia’s tropical medicine advancements.”
