The 2016 Conference builds on the 2015 Conference theme of “Health and Sustainable Development: The Future”. The 2015 Conference occurred shortly after the announcement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and while the SDGs were noted at the 2015 Conference, the 2016 Conference affords an opportunity for more in-depth discussion and debate in relation to the SDGs. In particular, the 2016 Conference will focus on how public health education as well as practice will need to transform to achieve the SDGs.
The 2016 Conference will feature workshops, satellite sessions, panel discussions, oral and poster presentations and site visits. The very successful panel debate format of 2015 will be retained with National Health Insurance a potential topic. The 2016 Conference forms part of the University of Fort Hare’s centenary and this very special occasion will be marked during the opening of the conference as well as the gala dinner.
