This year's theme, Health Disparities: A Time for Action, reflects one of the world's great challenges. The increasing gap in opportunity, security, health and prosperity between the poor and middle class, and the rich, continues to grow and threatens to undermine the gains in development we have seen over the last few decades.
The conference will be a forum for engagement, learning and collaboration to strengthen our efforts to impact the enormous challenges before us. We will have continuity with previous sub-themes: planetary health- One Health- environmental health; governance and institution strengthening; infectiou diseases; non-communicable diseases and the social determinants of health,
‚Äčand we will introduce new ones.
