Course Fee

The course fee is US$ 950 per person. We expect to run the course with minimum participants of 15 and the maximum of 35 persons. Fund should be paid in advance directly to the Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand.

Expenses and Travel

Selected participants will be awarded a WHO Fellowship, which will provide them with air travel, by the most direct, and economic mode and route, from their place of work to Bangkok, Thailand and return. Course participants who have notified the Secretary of the organizing of the flight and time of arrival in Bangkok, well in advance of their arrival, will be met at the airport and taken to the Faculty of Tropical Medicine will take approximately 1 hour.

A daily stipend will be paid to those persons awarded a WHO fellowship in accordance with WHO Fellowship rules, which is adequate to meet the cost of boarding and lodging.  At the time of preparing this announcement the official exchange rate was one US$ equals 33 Baht.

Any excess luggage will have to be paid for by the participants out of their stipend, as will travel insurance, which is highly recommended. The air ticket provided to the participants is the property of WHO and may not be changed. Participants must leave with a confirmed return air reservation on the first flight following the closing day. WHO will not pay extra stipend for unnecessary delays in returning home, including that caused by not having secured a confirmed return reservation before departing for the course. 

Participant from other funding agencies will receive fund as per rules and regulation of that agencies.

LODGING, BOARDING AND LOCAL TRANSPORTATION

Since this is a participatory, interactive education activity, participants are expected to work closely together during the day as well as in the evening, and hence all of them are expected to stay in the International Guest House, Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University for which block bookings have already been secured. A single occupancy air-conditioned room costs, at present, 1,100-1,500 Baht per day. Individual participants will be responsible for settling all accounts with the hotel before departure, and is to be paid out of their stipend. Accommodation charges do not include food. Restaurants usually provide varieties of food. Other restaurants are available, giving a wider choice of food. Every effort will be made to assist the participants to find the food of their preference.
