  • : 24th, 25th and 26th February, 2017
  • : Multisectoral Approach For Promoting Public Health

Programming experiences from the field have revealed that no single sector or agency can adequately address all the requirements of healthcare, so promoting and sustaining engagement between different sectors is a core priority for improved health outcomes. This demands for integrated approach of institutions, agencies, individuals and resources to promote participation of policy makers, governments and researchers across the key sectors and health specialists and communities to create healthy environments.

During conference we envisage to discuss various ideas and innovative ways of promoting public health through the multi-sectoral approach and develop key take-home messages.

Jodhpur is the second largest city in the Indian state of Rajasthan. It was formerly the seat of a princely state of the same name, the capital of the kingdom known as Marwar. Jodhpur is a popular tourist destination, featuring many palaces, forts and temples, set in the stark landscape of the “Thar Desert”. The city is known as the “Sun City” for the bright, sunny weather it enjoys all the year round. February month is the perfect time to soak into the spirit of the city, enjoy sightseeing during daytime and go for the desert activities.

Jodhpur lies near the geographic center of Rajasthan state, which makes it a convenient base for travel in a region much frequented by tourists. Jodhpur airport and railway station are only 8.5 km and 6 km respectively from the conference venue.

We assure you of the best hospitality, delicious food and high quality plenary sessions in the conference. Please feel free to give your valuable suggestions / ideas on how to approach this unique theme of the conference.
