Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to cordially invite you to attend the WARMADEWA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON TRAVEL MEDICINE which is going to be held in Bali, from the 6th – 7th of July 2018.

The theme of the conference which is ‘Challenges and Opportunities in Transforming Comprehensive Travel Medicine Services: Better Health, Brighter Travellers’, covers a wide-range of topics including pre-travel management issues, vaccines, infectious and non-infectious risk during travel, specific travellers with special needs, and adventure travel from experienced speakers. It is becoming progressively critical to address this public-health issue in the globalized world, in which lines of transportation and travel are becoming more accessible and ubiquitous. This case occurs mainly due to the fact that Bali is a tourism destination worldwide,  in which the tourism and travel industries play such enormous and critical role in the economy. It is therefore crucial that we work together to ensure safety health of travellers and their protection against infectious diseases as well as non-infectious diseases.

We would like to show our gratitude to Asia Pacific Travel Health Society (APTHS) and International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM), for the great support for the conference which made this conference possible. In addition, we would like to express my sincere appreciation to the speakers, to all participants and the sponsors for their valuable contributions.

With best wishes and welcome
