Dear Colleagues,It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 9th TEPHINET Global Scientific Conference in Thailand.Public health is more and more a global issue, and we are certainly not alone on the way of developing public health capacity. We believe learning and sharing with each other is an efficient way to strengthen the capacity of public health professionals to handle emerging and reemerging health problems and collaborate with each other to face regional and global threats.The TEPHINET Global Scientific Conference is a great platform to exchange the knowledge and experience gained from the front line of combating health threats. Impressed by previous successful conferences, Thailand is very happy to host the 9th TEPHINET Global Scientific Conference from 7 to 11 August 2017. During this opportunity, the 23rd National Epidemiology Seminar will be conducted from 7 to 9 August 2017 as a parallel conference.Thailand, as the host of the conference, hopes to contribute to the global professional network of epidemiologists by organizing this important event and strengthening ties with public health professionals in other countries and regions.We are glad to invite you to Chiang Mai, the culturally rich city of Thailand. Besides the scientific exchanges, we also hope you enjoy your stay here, explore the beautiful city after the meeting and witness the efforts to develop the country from our recently passed King, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Rama IX, whose wisdom and leadership also inspired the epidemiologists to serve the best to our people.On behalf of the Thailand Ministry of Public Health, we would like to welcome you to Chiang Mai, Thailand.Sopon Mekthon, MDPermanent SecretaryThailand Ministry of Public Health
This year, we celebrate the 20th anniversary of TEPHINET. In this period, we have developed a significant number of activities in support of the public health response at the national and international levels, the role of the Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) in response to public health emergencies, strengthening surveillance, improving the quality of our FETPs and other areas which constitute extraordinary examples of our value as a network of field epidemiologists.For all these reasons, one of the best opportunities to celebrate this anniversary is our 9th TEPHINET Global Scientific Conference, organized in collaboration with the Ministry of Public Health of the Kingdom of Thailand in Chiang Mai, Thailand from August 7 to 11, 2017.Our conference offers extraordinary opportunities for fellows and graduates from FETPs and applied epidemiology programs to present the results of their activities since our last conference.The celebration of our 20th anniversary as a part of the conference will be an opportunity to recognize the success of our network over the past two decades, but more importantly, to improve our preparation for the future to strengthen the collaboration between FETPs, improve their quality, and work in collaboration with our graduates to empower and mobilize a competent field epidemiology workforce for all people through standardized training, experiential learning, program quality improvement, mentoring, and knowledge exchanges in order to connect professionals better, faster and with quality across the globe.I welcome all of you during this 20th anniversary and Global Scientific Conference of TEPHINET. We wish you a happy stay in Thailand and hope that your participation in the conference is a success.
