First of all I would like to express my greatest gratitude to the god the almighty because of his blessing we can run Airlangga Medical Scientific Week 2018 well so far. By this event, we wish for a successful scientific event not only for the benefit of those who involved in it, but also for the good of the field of medical education and societies as a whole.

Airlangga Medical Scientific Week is an annual scientific event held by the Faculty of Medicine Airlangga University. This year we are back with a grand theme of “Tropical Medicine : Establishing Approaches Toward Disease Eradication and Widespread Control”. We raised this theme because as we know the aim of Tropical medicine is to promote and advance the study, control and prevention of diseases in human who especially lived in the tropics and sub-tropics.The people who are most affected by these diseases are often in the poor populations, living in remote, rural areas, urban slums or conflict zones. Neglected tropical diseases persist under conditions of poverty and are concentrated almost exclusively in impoverished populations in the developing world. That’s why we open opportunities for medical students in Indonesia and around the world to compete their works in four of our competition branches (research paper, literature review, scientific essay, public poster) and there we have our non-competiton program that you could join which are International symposium (open for public), we are also going to guide and introduce to you our Institute of Tropical Disease and later on exploring our city and lastly our warm hospitality night. We are very proud to announce that this year we are collaborated with Asia Pasific Conference on problem based-learning in Health Science and Higher Education.

I am honored and delighted to welcome you to Surabaya. “The city of Heroes” Surabaya is a port city and the capital of East Java (Jawa Timur) province of Indonesia. The beautiful city of Surabaya not only share an unique cultures it also share many historical places and don’t forget the amazing food that will make your journey going to be an enjoyable and unforgettable experience.

We hope you will join us to gain more knowledge and experiences. Don’t forget to take a quick break to enjoy the unforgettable moment that this historical city going to give you.
Warm regards,

In 2014, more than 1 billion travelers worldwide crossed international boundaries, including a record 68.3 million Americans, representing a 10% increase over the preceding year. However, whether associated with tourism, humanitarian efforts, globalization of industry, or migrant employment, studies suggest only a small number of travelers seek pre-travel health advice. In addition, the composition of those traveling continues to become more diverse and medically complex, creating a vastly different perspective on travel-associated medical concerns, preparations, required medical knowledge, and post-travel care precautions. With the decreasing global boundaries and increasing activities, travel medicine has become a rapidly evolving field of medicine. Classically, travel medicine focused on individuals traveling to developing countries with prevention and treatment of malaria, traveler's diarrhea, and general vaccinations as its primary goal. Travel medicine has subsequently become a dynamic multidisciplinary specialty that encompasses aspects of infectious disease, public health, tropical medicine, wilderness medicine, and appropriate immunization. Although these aspects are broad in reach, they are tightly integrated within the realm of travel medicine and require appropriate understanding prior to venturing out

Emerging infectious diseases are diseases that (1) have not occurred in humans before (this type of emergence is difficult to establish and is probably rare); (2) have occurred previously but affected only small numbers of people in isolated places (AIDS and Ebola hemorrhagic fever are examples); or (3) have occurred throughout human history but have only recently been recognized as distinct diseases due to an infectious agent (Lyme disease and gastric ulcers are examples).

Re-emerging infectious diseases are diseases that once were major health problems globally or in a particular country, and then declined dramatically, but are again becoming health problems for a significant proportion of the population (malaria and tuberculosis are examples). Many specialists in infectious diseases include re-emerging diseases as a subcategory of emerging diseases. Many infectious diseases have been successfully controlled, such as: cholera, dengue and diphtheria, but re-emerge (flare-up) again over the time and spread to the other new area. Emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases threaten all countries. Ebola hemorrhagic fever emerged in African villages; schistosomiasis is re-emerging in Egypt, largely as a consequence of building the Aswan Dam; and legionellosis was identified after an outbreak of pneumonia among individuals attending a conference in Philadelphia

Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs)– a diverse group of communicable diseases that prevail in tropical and subtropical conditions in 149 countries – affect more than one billion people and cost developing economies billions of dollars every year. Most of them parasitic infections, with high endemicity in the developing countries of Africa, Asia, and the Americas (Hotez, 2011). Populations living in poverty, without adequate sanitation and in close contact with infectious vectors and domestic animals and livestock are those worst affected.

Effective control can be achieved when selected public health approaches are combined and delivered locally. Interventions are guided by the local epidemiology and the availability of appropriate measures to detect, prevent and control diseases. Implementation of appropriate measures with high coverage will contribute to achieving the targets of the WHO NTD Roadmap on neglected tropical diseases, resulting in the elimination of many and the eradication of at least two by 2020.

NTDs are represented by 14 diseases, Ascariasis, Trichuriasis, Leptospirosis, Hookworm infection, Schistosomiasis, Lymphatic filariasis, Trachoma, Onchocerciasis, Leishmaniasis, Chagas’ disease, Leprosy, Human African Trypanosomiasis, Dracunculiasis and Buruli ulcer. These diseases play a large part in maintaining the poverty levels of afflicted populations as these diseases result in long-term disability and death.

Accordingly, in 2017 the 10th meeting of the Strategic and Technical Advisory Group for Neglected Tropical Diseases received proposals for the addition of diseases and, pursuant to the required procedures, chromoblastomycosis and other deep mycoses, scabies and other ectoparasites and snakebite envenoming have been added to the NTD portfolio.

Tropical Medicine is actually the science that study for the disease that are prevalent in the tropical area, in both infectious or non infectious diseases. Non infectious diseases in tropics including :

1. Cardiovascular diseases

2. Diabetes Mellitus

The prevalence of insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), type I. diabetes) is about 2,2/1000 in Finland, 1 in the USA, 0,03 in Japan, 0,03 in Africa. The prevalence of non inzulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM, type II. diabetes) in Europe and in the USA is 2-4%, in the Indian subcontinent is 7%, among pima indians and micronesia (Naura island) 50%. Among black africans is 1%. Diabetes mellitus, different from type I. and II. diabetes mellitus can be found in tropical countries. This type requires phasicly large amount of insulin and related malnutrition (MRDM).

3. Haemoglobinopathies

4. Nutrition Associated Diseases
