A World United Against Infectious Diseases:
Cross-sectoral solutions

Prince Mahidol Award Conference 2013
1st Global Conference on Regional Disease Surveillance Networks
2nd International One Health Congress
Centennial Commemoration of the Rockefeller Foundation

Date: 28 January - 2 Febuary 2013

Venue : Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre at Central World



The Prince Mahidol Award Conference is an annual international conference hosted by the Royal Thai Government, the Prince Mahidol Award Foundation, and other relevant International Organizations, Foundations and Civil Society Organizations. The Conference serves as an international forum for sharing evidence for health related policies and strengthens social commitments for health development. This conference is linked to the annual Prince Mahidol Award for public health and medicines, one of the most prestigious international health awards.

The Conference in 2013 is jointly organized for the Prince Mahidol Award Conference 2013, the 1st Global Conference on Regional Disease Surveillance Networks, the 2nd International One Health Congress, and the Centennial Commemoration of the Rockefeller Foundation.  The 2013 Conference with the theme "A World United Against Infectious Diseases: Cross-Sectoral Solutions" is dedicated to transparent and progressive resolve to reduce the threat of infectious diseases through cross-sectoral and international cooperation and communication.

The 2013 Conference will prove to be one of the most significant assemblages of infectious disease experts in the world, who will meet to advance the "One Health" agenda beyond the theoretical to the practical, and bring much-needed attention to the policy and operational issues that ultimately determine the impact and success of these cross-sectoral efforts.

We expect vanguard moments with a positive impact on global solidarity for a world united against infectious disease.

Synthesis: Summary, Conclusion & Recommendations
Synthesis icon-ppt



To foster cooperation and communication across sectors and across borders to mitigate the threat of infectious diseases, existing or emerging, at the human-animal-ecosystems interface.

To review and share experiences among low, middle and high-income countries with different degrees of health system capacity as defined within the International Health Regulations and the OIE PVS pathway, leading to knowledge sharing, strengthening of health systems, establishment of sound policies, and positive social action.

To identify the human suffering and economic cost if we fail to build appropriate human and institutional capacities and fail to exploit available technologic innovations in countering health threats.

To provide opportunities for a group of experts - utilizing multidiscipline country teams - to dialogue, learn, create solutions, and provide leadership in applied one-health concepts.

To provide a platform for international, regional, and national disease surveillance systems and networks to demonstrate best practices, forward-looking concepts, management of political challenges, and cross-border cooperation in response to health threats at the human-animal-ecosystem interface.

To identify those policies and other higher-level factors that either constrain or enable effective cross-sectoral collaboration at the country, regional and global level and the formulation of an action agenda that draws on these insights to promote successful cross-sectoral solutions to infectious disease threats.
