HWB 2017 : The 5th Asian Symposium on Healthcare Without Borders
Call For Papers
We welcome you to join us in Hiroshima, Japan for the 5th Asian Symposium on Healthcare Without Borders, which will be held jointly with the International Conference on Advancing the Life Sciences and Public Health Awareness (ALPHA) and the 5th Conference on Human Development in Asia (COHDA).
HWB was also held this past summer in Hiroshima and preceded the 72nd Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony. Due to the inability of many participants to attend in August due to the memorial and peak season travel, we are holding HWB this December again in Hiroshima.
In addition to the symposium, participants will have an opportunity to enjoy a free, guided tour in English of Hiroshima Peace Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
While life expectancy across the board is increasing, traditional health metrics, such as infant mortality rate and infectious disease rate remain constant reminders of our need to be vigilant and address the sharp health care disparities underlying Asian nations as well as the diverse challenges they face.
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?
With the theme Facing New Challenges in Healthcare, it is hoped that today’s challenges in health care can be met with viable global solutions. Thus we welcome you to join us for this exciting symposium to share, learn and network as well as to explore the culture, history and beauty of Hiroshima!
We are offering a special early registration rate of only 23,500 JPY. We welcome submissions of 250 words in English by Friday, November 17, 2017. Click on the submission link below to submit your proposal today!
