About SNAHP 2019
SNAHP is convened in affiliation with the Institute of Medicine at Suranaree University of Technology, Thailand and its Parasitic Disease Research Center.
The purpose of SNAHP 2019 is twofold: Firstly, this event is to serve as an international platform for presenting innovative research in interdisciplinary fields of nursing and professional health. Secondly, and more importantly, is to highlight the need for more nurses, healthcare professionals, administrators, researchers, policy makers and others who under immense strain due to the critical shortage of qualified healthcare personnel throughout Asia.
The healthcare industry is challenged by an increase in both regional and global population, coupled with rapidly growing aging societies around Asia. Moreover, the accessibility to quality healthcare between rich urban areas and relative inaccessibility or reduced quality for poor rural communities is yet another dilemma. Despite advances in medical technology, workforce shortages, increasing costs, local and global geopolitical issues all add to the daunting challenges facing the healthcare industry today. SNAHP 2019 will address theses emerging challenges and more.
