The Colloquium will endeavour to generate discussion regarding an evidence-based approach to the reduction of the burden of disease and disability in developing countries and the elimination of contemporary threats to international and global health, with particular emphasis on new disease threats, new phenomena and continuing global issues.
Nelson Mandela once stated, "The greatest single challenge facing our globalised world is to combat and eradicate its disparities". A global approach to solving what are now considered global health issues, including HIV/AIDS, Avian Flu and SARS, is of vital importance. Disease, poverty, war, and terrorism are no longer isolated factors that influence health status in our global society. It is hoped that this Colloquium will bring together professionals from all over the world to present a united front in this battle to "combat and eradicate" such threats.
Regardless of the focus of your academic or clinical endeavours, the knowledge you bring to this Colloquium regarding the synthesis, transfer and utilisation of the best available evidence will contribute to informing the discussion and debate surrounding current global health issues.
