Dear participants

It is a honour to host the 49th Conference of the Asia-Pacific Academic Consortium for Public Health, or APACPH, here at Yonsei University, Incheon, Korea. We are happy to host the APACPH, as the year 2017 is also the 40th Anniversary of the Yonsei Graduate School of Public Health.

This year’s theme is “The Age of Shifting Paradigm: SDGs, New Approach for Public Health”. The theme consists of four themes, which are ‘From MDG to SDG’, ‘Parallel to integral: UHC’, ‘Selective to Inclusive: GHSA’, and ‘From Analogue to Digital: 4th Industrial Revolution’, which are major issues in public health.

I believe that the conference will provide a perfect opportunity to get the most up-to-date information and recent trends in the public health studies through lectures of world-famous scholars and presentations about various topics such as global health & health promotion, public health nursing & community health nursing, public health law & ethics and others.

We at the 49th APACPH are happy to invite you to the conference. I look forward to your participation at the 49th APACPH International Conference.
