Call For Papers

Welcome to the 2nd Pacific Symposium for Nursing and Healthcare Professionals. This international, peer-reviewed weekend event will be held in partnership with the 3rd International Conference on Disaster Response and Management (DREAM 2017) and the 3rd Conference on Sustainable Business & Development in Asia (COSDA 2017) and the 3rd Conference on Sustainable Tourism in Asia. All workshop events will be held jointly from August 29-31, 2017 at the Mitsui Garden Hotel in Hiroshima, Japan.

In today’s world, for most people, our health issues ranging a sore throat or eye infection to more serious problems such as infectious diseases and elderly care are often addressed by nurses and health professionals before visiting a doctor.

Rapid economic development around the Pacific has brought about vast improvement in the health care industry with some traditional health metrics, such as infant mortality rate and infectious disease rate among others, decreasing while life expectancy across the board is increasing. However, this rosy and simplified view masks the sharp health care disparities underlying Asian nations as well as the diverse challenges they face.

Many factors from the varying levels of social, political and economic development to geology and climate change, which have been responsible for the recent earthquakes and seasonal typhoons and floods, have been reshaping the continent and spawning critical healthcare questions in need of tangible solutions. In Southern Asia, 1 in 16 children die before the age of five because of the effects of poverty and the absence of quality health care. Although life expectancy is increasing in the region, at 64 years, it desperately lags behind the rest of Asia. How can we ensure the equitable and efficient allocation of health-related resources across all Asia to meet basic needs and emergencies? What role can policy makers play in creating affordable universal health care?

On the other end of the spectrum, well-developed nations like Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore boast a life expectancy over 80 years old. This fact raises many questions concerning health policies including: How to address the aging populations and their subsequent ballooning health care costs, as well as the rising number of both non-communicable and dietary diseases, which severely affect all of Asia.

SNAHP will provide an interdisciplinary platform for physicians, nurses, administrators, educators, researchers, academics, medical students, humanitarian aid workers, policy makers, non-profit professionals and related healthcare specialists. With the theme Healthcare Challenges for the 21st Century, it is hoped that today’s challenges in health care can be met with viable global solutions.
