Prince Mahidol Award Conference

29 January – 3 February | Bangkok, Thailand

The Prince Mahidol Award was established in 1992 to honor the 100th birthday of ‘The Father of Modern Medicine and Public Health of Thailand,’ Prince Mahidol of Songkla. This award is granted to individuals or organizations that have made exceptional, global contributions to the development of medical and public health services as well as human resources. It is awarded every January in Bangkok with prizes totaling in around USD 100,000.

The Prince Mahidol Award Conference (PMAC) was first organized in 1998 to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the Prince Mahidol Award, then again in 2002 for the 10th anniversary.  To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the award and the 115th Birthday of His Royal Highness Prince Mahidol of Songkla, the conference was requested to be organized annually since 2007.

Since then, PMAC has been organized as an annual international conference centering on policy-related public health issues of worldwide importance. The conference is hosted by the Prince Mahidol Award Foundation, the Royal Thai Government and other global partners, funded by the Thai government with an annual budget of approximately USD 1 million.

The 2018 theme is, “making our world safe from emerging infectious diseases.”
