On behalf of the Organising Committee, we are delighted to invite you to take part in the Annual Conference on Disaster Preparedness and Response (ACDPR 2016): Building a Resilient Health System, that will take place on 8 October 2016 (Saturday) at the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine Jockey Club Building, Hong Kong.

The ACDPR 2016 is co-organized by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI) and the Hong Kong College of Community Medicine (HKCCM). This year also commemorates the HKCCM’s 25 years of commitment in advocating principles and practice of community medicine, with an emphasis on disaster prevention and community health promotion.

The Conference with the theme of “Building a Resilient Health System” provides excellent opportunities for thought provoking discussions and sharing of experiences among a diverse range of disaster and health professionals, health advocates, policy makers, academics and NGO practitioners. Bringing together high caliber speakers, it features plenary sessions, dedicated oral and poster presentations, interactive workshops and panel discussions highlighting the essentials of the development, maintenance and promotion of a preventive safety and health system towards building international and national capacity for disaster risk management.

The ACDPR 2016 provides an excellent opportunity to exhibit your organisation’s service and work, which helps strengthen the multi-sectoral efforts in increasing the resiliency of our health system to disasters.
