16th World Congress on Public Health @ Rom (ITA)
Oct 12 – Oct 17 all-day

Under the title ” Public health for the future of humanity: analysis, advocacy and action” the 16th World Congress on Public Health will take place in Rome from 12 to 17 October 2020.

Global temperatures lie far beyond historical records. Threats to food and water supply, poverty and inequalities are leading to mass migration and conflict. Political structures, at national, regional, and global level, are struggling to respond to these developments.

Therefore, the global public health community must make visible the threats to health, some of which are already emerging; enter into dialogue to those with the power to make a difference; act, making real our commitment to health in all policies.

An overview of the plenary programme can be found here.

5. Hamburger Symposium zur regionalen Gesundheitsversorgung @ Hamburg (GER)
Nov 17 all-day

Am 17. November 2021 veranstaltet das Universitätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf (Institut für Versorgungsforschung in der Dermatologie und bei Pflegeberufen – IVDP) das 5. Hamburger Symposium zur regionalen Gesundheitsversorgung.

Die künftige Krankheitslast wird von verschiedenen Faktoren beeinflusst; so z.B. vom stetig zunehmenden Urbanisierungsgrad, einer alternden Bevölkerung und wachsender sozialer Ungleichheit. Diesen Veränderungen wird auch die Gesundheitsversorgung begegnen müssen. Städtische und ländliche Räume stehen dabei vor unterschiedlichen Herausforderungen.
Vor diesem Hintergrund liegt der thematische Schwerpunkt des Symposiums auf der „Gesundheit und Versorgung der Zukunft – wie sind Stadt und Land aufgestellt?“.

Weitere Informationen zu den konkreten Konferenzinhalten und zur Registrierung folgen.

Die Konferenz findet in Kooperation mit unserer 7. Konferenz der Serie „Stadt der Zukunft – Gesunde, nachhaltige Metropolen“ statt.

Vertiefende Informationen zum 5. Hamburger Symposium finden Sie hier sowie im Vorankündigungs-Flyer.
