2nd Conference on Public Health and Food Safety in Asia (COPHA) 2015 Hiroshima

  • Conference Call
  • As host, PRESDA Foundation is pleased to welcome you to Hiroshima, Japan from March 29 – 31, 2015 to attend the Second Conference on Public Health and Food Safety in Asia (COPHA 2015) to be held at the Mitsui Garden Hotel Hiroshima. Our theme for this year is Unity in Community.

    2015 marks an important precipice in the global effort to improve public health and food safety because this year is the deadline for the Millennium Development Goals set by the United Nations. The aim of this conference is to not only draw awareness to Asia, but to all regions of the world that face the ongoing challenges related to maintaining good health, preventing disease associated with water and food borne illnesses and, of course, educating the public.

    Our theme Unity in Community will serve as platform for sharing research, discussing issues and networking. COPHA 2015 is an excellent opportunity for health managers, physicians, nurses, healthcare administrators, researchers, academics, medical students, humanitarian aid workers, policy makers, non-​profit professionals and related healthcare specialists to share their experiences.
