WRHC 2018 | INDIA HABITAT CENTRE, NEW DEHLI, INDIA
APRIL 26-29, 2018
Theme: "Healing the Heart of Healthcare: Leaving No One Behind"
Poor health constitutes suffering and deprivation of the most fundamental kind. The theme of the conference is 'Healing the Heart of Healthcare: Leaving No One Behind' bringing focus on challenges of rural health system development. Rural habitat poses a severe disadvantage to rural population in terms of access to healthcare services. Only a comprehensive approach can address these inequities arising from poor healthcare systems. The members of United Nations have put 'leaving no one behind' at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals 2030 agenda. There is a special emphasis on those left furthest behind and the most excluded. The 15th World Rural Health Conference (WRHC 2018) aspires and invites delegates from all over world to develop strategies for healthy rural population.
