Seminar Overview/Statement of Purpose:
The large number of islands that make up Indonesia and their dispersion over a wide area has given rise to a diverse culture and hundreds of ethnic groups. Delivering quality healthcare across multicultural groups and locales with an increasing incidence of non-communicable diseases is an ongoing challenge.
Similarly, the US population is becoming more ethnically diverse, and the occurrences of non-communicable diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes are increasing. Exploring solutions to these challenges with in-country professionals provides opportunities for practitioners to enhance healthcare delivery models and best practices to prevent and control disease in cross-cultural environments.
Planned In Country Healthcare Topics Include:
- National Healthcare Delivery Systems in Indonesia
- Community Healthcare: Challenges & Conquests
- Prevention & Control of Communicable Diseases
- Emerging Trends in Non-communicable Diseases
- Oral Health & Disease Prevention
- Emergency Healthcare Delivery: Tsunamis & Beyond
