At the fourth Congress of the Far Eastern Association of Tropical Medicine which was held at Weltevreden, Java, in August, 1921, a proposal was made on behalf of the Governments of the Straits Settlements and Federated Malay States by their delegate Dr. A. E. Horn, that the next Congress of the Association be held in Malaya.

The laws of the Association provide that the meetings shall be held every two years, and as the proposal was accepted, the Congress will meet in Malaya in 1923.

Dr. A. E. Horn was chosen President for the forthcoming session.

Drs. A. L. Hoops and R. Dowden were elected as Vice Presidents for the Straits Settlements and Federated Malay States, respectively, and Dr. Scharff as Honorary Secretary for Malaya.

On April 21, 1922, a meeting was held to elect committees for the organization of the Congress. Subsequently other meetings were held, and definite schemes were prepared for the management of Congress.
