Welcome and Introduction Dr. Dennis Carroll, Chair of the IOC Meeting, welcomed the IOC members to the meeting followed by the introduction of the meeting participants. Dr. Churnrurtai Kanchanachitra then explained the work process since January 2017. There was the Call for Abstracts which closed at the end of March 2017, followed by the Scientific Committee Meeting in Tokyo to select the abstracts. Afterwards, there was the Joint Secretariat Meeting to discuss the sub-themes, possible sessions, and session coordinators. The session coordinators were assigned to develop the details of each session, which was then presented at the Coordinators Meeting in Montreux during 16-17 May. The Coordinators Meeting looked at overlaps and gaps in the content of the sessions, merged some sessions and finally concluded with 20 sessions. These sessions will be further revised by the coordinators
  3. 3. 3 according to the comments from the Coordinators Meeting. The Coordinators Meeting also agreed on the new structure of the conference program. This was followed by the Joint Secretariat Meeting on 18 May to finalize the sessions into time slots and suggestion of keynote speakers for important sessions such as the Opening Session, Dinner Session, and Closing Session. The minutes of the Coordinators Meeting and Joint Secretariat Meeting were provided to all IOC members in the folder. 2. Conference Program at a Glance Dr. Dennis Carroll provided a brief overview of the sub-themes and informed the IOC Members of the PMAC 2018 Program at a Glance as shown below. To create more space and time for slots of parallel sessions, the lunch time was reduced and meeting would start earlier on the second day. The new design of the conference program would allow participants to attend 4 parallel sessions and accommodate different streams for audiences attracted by different topics. The 3 sub-themes align with Plenary 1, 2 and 3. Plenary 3 will be replaced by PS 18 “The Livestock Revolution, Emerging Zoonoses and AMR: Managing Risk across Livestock and Fisheries Value Chain” whose content will be broadened and the title changed to reflect the wider content. All the sessions will be renumbered and the titles of the sessions will revised to be more attractive and clear. The IOC agreed on the Conference structure and the sessions proposed. 3. Side Meetings Besides the main conference program, the side meetings will be an integral part of PMAC 2018. This year, we will try to reorient the pre-conference sessions to link with the formal conference program. The pre-conference sessions will be organized and thought out to elevate the topics of the main conference. The pre-conference sessions will also allow detailed interactive engagement of the participants. There is are around 25-30 slots for the pre-conference sessions, with rooms that can accommodate ranging from 30 to 200 participants. The lead sub-theme coordinators will work with side meeting organizers and act as a filter, helping merge proposals that are similar. The side meetings will be asked to identify actionables that can contribute to the Call to Action. Priority will be given to side meetings related to the current theme, side meetings related to the past conference theme to come back and move the agenda forward, and side meetings linking to the future theme. Some proposed side meetings include:  PIP Framework (WHO)  Resources for preparedness and response (WHO)  Communication (WHO)  Financing (The World Bank)  Migration (IOM might be interested to lead)  Extractive industry (USAID, Chatham House)  Simulation exercises (UNDP)  Movements supporting small scale production vs. big food industries  Link between infectious diseases and NCDs. There is a strong convergence between the 2018 and 2019 theme. The deadline to submit the side meeting proposals through the website is 30 September 2017.

  5. 5. 5 4. Potential Keynote Speakers Dr. Churnrurtai informed the IOC members of potential keynote speakers for important sessions such as the Opening Session, Dinner Session and Closing Session. Opening Session (formal, presided over by HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn)  Prince Mahidol Award Laureates (maximum of 2)  Joanne Liu from MSF (represents grassroots, frontline people)  Angela Merkel from Germany (represents global political leader) Dinner Session (relaxed)  Bill Gates (represents global visionary leader) Closing Session  Margaret Chan Other suggested names include:  Larry Summers  New WHO DG  Gino Strada  Michel Sidibe  Minister of Health of Japan There is the challenge of attracting people to stay until the last day of the conference. Having a powerful keynote speaker at the Closing Session could help pull attendance on the 3rd day of the main conference. The IOC members agreed on the list of keynote speakers proposed. 5. Field Trip Dr. Jadej Thammatach-aree presented the 7 field trip sites supporting the theme of PMAC 2018 which will allow participants to have hands on engagement with the work in Thailand. 1) Simplicity and complexity of controlling multidrug-resistant organisms in a university hospital: Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University 2) Multi-Sectoral Coordination : preparedness approaches for addressing emerging infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance in University Hospital. : Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University 3) Antibiotic Smart Use program (ASU) to promote rational use of antibiotics in hospitals. : Phraphuthabat Hospital, Saraburi Province 4) “Public – Private - Community Participation” to deal with antibiotic resistance. : Ban Lang Khao, Muaklek Sub-district, Saraburi Province 5) Emerging Infectious Disease Preparedness, Prevention & Response in Thailand : Department of Disease Control, Ministry of Public Health 6) Commitments to responsible antimicrobial use in the farm through consumers : Department of Livestock Development, Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives and A Pig Farm in Ratchaburi province. 7) Application to promote participatory disease surveillance : National Science and Technology Development Agency, National Electronics and Computer Technology : NSTDA, NECTEC
  6. 6. 6 The meeting suggested other dimensions that could be added to the field trips including:  Sale of antibiotics at retail, effective way to curb unregulated retailers at community level  Effective market surveillance  Measures of biosecurity The National Health Security Office who is responsible for the field trip will take the suggestions into consideration and make necessary adjustment to the field trip program. 6. Art Contest PMAC has been organizing the Art Contest since 2013. The Art Contest allows children to learn about global health issues and interpret them into art. The meeting agreed that the appropriate theme for the PMAC 2018 Art Contest is “One Health” where there is the component of “Smart Use of Medicine” in the One Health approach. The co-hosts were asked to help disseminate information about the Art Contest to their network, schools and families to promote more international entries. 7. Raising Greater Awareness of PMAC The meeting discussed possibilities to raise greater awareness of PMAC including:  Using large billboards in Thailand to publicize about PMAC or the Smithsonian materials to create better understanding  Systematic use of social media – twitter, youtube  Using communication consultants to put together a communication package  Hackathons to bring in younger people  Planet Virus (network of young PHD students) 8. PMAC Assessment Dr. Churnrurtai presented the summary of the Assessment Report from the International Assessment Team (IAT). Recommendations from the report are as follows:  The IAT suggests that the current objective of PMAC should be reviewed to consider whether to re-affirm or adapt them in light of past experiences and new opportunities.  The IAT recommends that there is wider engagement with PMAC among groups currently outside the PMAC networks, to draw in new ideas, build momentum around PMAC themes and reach wider audiences.  The IAT recommends PMAC increased engagement by Thai co-hosts and that a plan is developed to reach out to additional, potential Thai co-host organizations.  The IAT recommends that functions of the PMAC process be reviewed.  The IAT recommends engagement with other groups organizing global health conferences.
  7. 7. 7 The meeting suggested that  The assessment should be part of the IOC work  Co-hosts should help report on the impact of PMAC  Should think proactively about pathways that PMAC influences  There should be a monkey survey. It seems that participants in review did not include participants from countries, interested to know how they have benefited from the conference. How useful was PMAC and its quality?  Direct feedback on PMAC can be provided through the mobile application at the conference  Need to collect more information about the side meetings and their impact as the side meetings have become an important part of PMAC The PMAC Secretariat will take all suggestions into consideration in planning the future direction of PMAC. 9. PMAC 2019 Dr. Prin Vathesatogkit presented the concept note for PMAC 2019 which revised following comments from the Joint Secretariat Meeting. The IOC members provided additional comments to further develop the concept note as follows:  Session about NCD causes of mortality as NCDs is the common cause in developing countries  Double burden of disease  Integration of NCD management in primary health care  More emphasis on political and commercial drivers of NCDs  Need to be clear about the differential impact of choices  Suggest to ban the use of the word “lifestyle” in the concept note  Don’t be too negative about the prospects of childhood obesity  Recent advances of reducing industry influence on policy  How to tackle industry interference  Growing movement toward verticalized funding  Role of governments and progressive policies  Biotechnology for prevention  Health services to respond to chronic diseases  Appreciate the focus on “urban”  Understand the big corporations’ side – what is driving their shifting attitudes and how to add speed to that  Should prepare concept note as a storyboard upfront Dr. Prin will further revise the concept note based on comments received from the IOC Meeting. If co-hosts have other issues to add to the concept note, please forward them to the PMAC Secretariat. The PMAC 2019 Working Group will be meeting in October to further shape up the concept note. IOC members who are interested in joining may inform the PMAC Secretariat. It was suggested to invite IDRC Canada and Bloomberg Foundation to the Working Group Meeting.
  8. 8. 8 10. Rapporteurs The rapporteurs will assist with conference synthesis by providing 1) an immediate summary for the conference synthesis session on the last day and 2) a detailed summary for the report on the conference. The co-hosts will be asked to propose names of rapporteurs for different sessions. This year, it was proposed to also have rapporteurs for side meetings that relate to the conference theme so that they can provide feedback to the conference sessions and Call to Action. The PMAC Secretariat will send out the TOR for rapporteurs. 11.
