Welcome remark The Chairman of GHI Conference
Dear all participants and invited speakers,
It is my privilege and pleasure, on behalf of Dean of Faculty of Medicine and Rector University of Mataram, to welcome you all to the 1st International Conference on Global Health and Innovation. This conference is held by the Faculty of Medicine Universitas Mataram with the support of Chungnam National University, Indonesian Doctor Association of West Nusa Tenggara, and Indonesia Pharmacist Association. This conference is in conjunction with the 57th Dies Natalis of Universitas Mataram and 16th Dies Natalis of the Faculty of Medicine Universitas Mataram.
The theme of the conference this year, â€œMultiple Burden of Diseases in the Developing Countriesâ€ reflects the current health situation faced by Indonesia and other developing countries, where due to the demographic and socio-economic transition and the increasing trend of non-communicable diseases, more constraints are imposed to our health systems in dealing with the pre-existing burden of communicable diseases. This is a challenge that calls out further action and innovation.
This conference is presenting you with internationally recognized, multidisciplinary expert speakers from Indonesia and abroad to share their knowledge in regards to the current global health concerns of the multiple burdens of diseases in developing countries. We have 100 participants with 53 abstract.
To further disseminate the scientific endeavors of researchers who have submitted their study to be presented in this conference, we are partnering with Bali Medical Journal, an experienced and internationally-indexed journal in Indonesia.
Conferences such as this provide a valuable opportunity for health professionals, researchers and students to share knowledge, ideas, and experiences. It is also a forum for young and senior researcher to connect and explore potential future collaboration.
We would like to thank the provincial government of West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesian Doctor Association, Indonesia Pharmacist Association and all sponsors for the supports.
I am sure you will have fruitful and rewarding exchanges during this conference. I wish you every success with this important conference and I look forward to learning about the outcome. We once again welcome you to Lombok and we hope that you are enjoying this conference.
