Dear Colleagues and Friends

On behalf of the Croatian Society of Travel, Tropical and Migration Medicine of the Croatian Medical Association and the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure and honor to welcome you to the 1st Croatian Congress on Travel, Tropical, Migration Medicine & HIV with international participation, to be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on October 1-4, 2015.
The Society of Travel, Tropical and Migration Medicine of the Croatian Medical Association is a young society, the first of this kind in the region. We are very enthusiastic to promote and improve education, awareness and knowledge on travel, tropical and migration medicine.
The main goal of the congress is to bring together Southeastern European health care workers with various professional backgrounds and leading experts in the field to share knowledge and expertise on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the most common diseases in travelers and migrants, major tropical diseases and HIV infection. We aim to achieve this goal through high quality workshops and lectures held by leading experts in the field and also hope that younger colleagues will have a great learning experience and the opportunity to present their original work.
The city of Dubrovnik is a perfect venue for this congress. Apart from being a wonderful city with unique historical and cultural heritage, Dubrovnik was a major trading and maritime center on the crossroads between East and West. It is a town with a medical heritage and great achievements of medieval medicine and the first city to have a documented organization of quarantine, introduced by the Great Council of Dubrovnik, in July 1377.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Dubrovnik and hope our meeting will be the beginning of a scientific friendship and future collaboration.

Sincerely

Davorka Lukas
President
