COPHA 2017 : The 3rd International Conference on Public Health in Asia
Call For Papers
Welcome to the 3rd International Conference on Public Health in Asia. COPHA 2017 is an international, peer-reviewed, weekend event which will be held in Hiroshima, Japan from Friday and Saturday, April 28-29, 2017 at the Hiroshima KKR Hotel.
The symbol of Hiroshima is ‘water’ and so the theme of COPHA 2017 is Global Challenges for Public Health and Water. The aim of this conference is to promote the importance of global health and also access to safe drinking water, both of which have been declared as basic human rights by the United Nations.
Today, over 780 million people lack access to clean water and nearly 1.9 billion lack adequate sanitation and 1.5 million children under the age of five die each year as a result of diarrheal disease, and in India alone, approximately 600,000 children fall victim to diarrhea or pneumonia annually as a result of toxic water and poor hygiene.
COPHA 2017 is an excellent opportunity for health managers, physicians, nurses, healthcare administrators, researchers, academics, medical students, humanitarian aid workers, policy makers, non-profit professionals and related healthcare specialists to exchange information, debate and discuss trends in public health, water, sanitation and hygiene.
