Join the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from August 20-23, 2018 for the next Public Health Informatics Conference, Connecting Systems and People to Improve Population Health. The Conference considers ‘population health‘ to broadly mean “the health outcomes of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group.” However, we also acknowledge that definitions of ‘population’ – and therefore ‘population health’ – vary by sectors and the collective individuals they serve. Recognizing that these sectors are critical components of the public health system, the conference welcomes engagement and perspectives from all sectors on how to collaboratively and comprehensively achieve better health outcomes for those whom they serve.

The First Malaria World Congress will be held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from 1 – 5 July 2018.

Malaria is without doubt one of the world’s leading health problems causing death and severe illness to millions each year at a scale that entrenches poverty and disadvantage in major swathes of the world. Despite impressive advances over the last decade, malaria remains a huge global and regional threat. The recently released World Health Organisation 2017 World Malaria Report is a salutary reminder that we are indeed at a tipping point which could go either way.

At present, there is no mechanism anywhere in the world for ALL stakeholders - those in affected communities, in government, in policy development, in implementation, in program finance, and in research - to gather and share information, to reach a consensus and to build a solid framework for collaborative action against malaria.
