51st APACPH Conference
It is my honor and privilege to celebrate 72nd founding Anniversary of the Faculty of Public Health, Mahidol University by hosting the 51st APACPH Conference during 21st -22nd November 2019 at the Amari Watergate Hotel, Bangkok Thailand. This conference under the theme, “SDGs in Reality” aims to share public health knowledge related to sustainable development. Since HRH Prince Mahidol of Songkla’s philosophy and the late King Bhumibol’s sufficient economy are in concordance with the United Nation’s Sustain Development Goals. Therefore, the 51st APACPH conference theme on SDGs is for us timely and appropriately to organize as the Faculty of Public Health.
Another aim of this gathering is to document and report progress or achievements at the national and regional level. We need to explore how to expand the links within and without our regions to develop more opportunities for international collaborations. I hope we begin to break down traditional academic boundaries to create collaborative teams of experts to achieve the stated SDGs especially those concerning health, peace and security.
The conference activities are arranged not only for professionals who work in the SDGs to revisit the approach and document the positive results or barriers but also for promoting professional experiences in healthy meeting and green environment, so that all participants’ health are enhanced, and WHO ‘Health in All Policy (HiAP) approach is endorsed.
Lastly, I wish you enjoy your stay in Bangkok. Please let our support staff know any of your concerns throughout the meeting, both individual and communal and how we can help you plan more effectively.
We will do our best to make your stay in Thailand a memorable experience.
Thank you very much for your kind attention and, I look forward to meeting you at the 51st APACPH Conference in Bangkok.
