The Global Science and Technology Forum (GSTF) is kindly inviting you to participate in the 4th Annual Global Healthcare Conference (GHC), held in Singapore at the Fort Canning Hotel on June 29 – 30, 2015. The conference will be held alongside the 3rd Annual Worldwide GSTF Nursing Conference (WNC) 2015.
A healthy way of life should be every individual’s goal. However, healthcare privileges differ across societies, and requires the combined efforts of government, the private sector, the public and health workers themselves to ensure both the accessibility and affordability of healthcare services. Funding for health and medical facilities are vital to the health and well-being of the public.
But most importantly, health and medical researchers and developers serve the task of advancing health care and medical science through the study and proper dissemination of information, in order to improve the state of health care service of any country.
