Dear Colleagues and Guests,
It is very soon from now, on September 3-4, 2021, that you have an appointment with us, the 13thAsia Paciﬁc Conference on Tobacco or Health (13th APACT 2021). Please mark the date on your diary to make sure that you are not missing an auspicious moment. The organizing committee of the event has been working hard in the preparation and curiously looking forwards to welcoming you to participate this conference. We are planning to entertain you with both academic and relaxing environment. The world needs your share and contribution in making this world a healthy public place to live on. The 13thAPACT, 2021 will provide the way we can work together hands in hands in ﬁghting with the most difﬁcult health problem, tobacco smoking, the problem that deteriorates and shortens our life longevity and suffers our peaceful lifestyle. The problem that cannot be worked out by just a single people, organization or a country but absolutely needs coordination and collaboration amongst us, not only health professional but multi professionals. The theme of the conference will be “Moving Together for Tobacco Free-Society” which will render you the opportunity to harvest new ideas and new technologies from profound international specialists from around the world. We are really ﬁghting with a mighty and wealthy Goliath with our strong bonding. I do really hope that we will be stronger and will, at the end, win the war.
In the year 2021, it is also a year that we celebrate the centennial of Medical Association of Thailand (MAT) who is the pioneer for anti-smoking campaign in Thailand for over 46 years! We cordially invite you to join us at the APACT 2021 in Bangkok, Thailand.
