This year’s theme ‘Framing our Future’ will lead the discussion of this four-day global networking event. “The 2017 IANPHI Annual Meeting provides an opportunity for our members to share experiences and develop ideas and strategies for collaboration to affect the future of public health,” said ISS President Professor Walter Ricciardi. “Although our countries are homes to unique cultures, systems, and individuals, we all share similar public health challenges. Prevention, detection, and response to diseases and other public health threats are more important now than ever, and NPHIs play a critical role in each of these tasks."
