Since its conception in 1962 at the Department of Parasitology, University of Singapore by Prof. R.S Desowitz. MSPTM was established in 1964 by the first President Dr. A.A. Sandosham and his team under the auspices of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine & Hygiene, London. Many great leaders and councils have successfully built on the strengths of their predecessors and made MSPTM what it is today. My heart goes out to these people and their achievements for making us a strong and a well-respected organisation within the scientific and medical fraternity.
