Organized by

Faculty of Health & Biomedical Sciences (FoHBS)


Globalization is a defining characteristic of the present times. It is explained by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a phenomenon of increasing interconnectedness and interdependence amongst countries which includes the opening of borders to facilitate flow of people, goods, finances, services and ideas across international borders and the changes in institutional and policy regimes at the international and national levels that facilitate or promote such flows.

Alongside globalization, is another phenomenon that has marked a paradigm shift: the emergence of 'knowledge' as the most important and true power of this century. It may be difficult to keep pace with this knowledge explosion; however this is required! One therefore needs to look at the knowledge in different disciplines and consider applying these pearls of wisdom to improve the services offered by one's discipline.

In this dual context of globalization and knowledge explosion, healthcare conferences has assumed centre stage as an area that is becoming increasingly global health conference and knowledge-oriented. A key feature of this dynamically growing healthcare conferences sector is its expansion, to include into its fold, many other disciplines such as Management, Information Technology, Law, Communication, Geospatial Applications, International Relations etc.
