6th Annual Global Healthcare Conference (GHC 2017)
www.globalhc-conf.org  |  secretariat@globalhc-conf.org
24th – 25th July 2017, Singapore

Conference Theme: “Healthy way of life should be every individual’s goal. However, healthcare privileges differ across societies, and requires the combined efforts of government, the private sector, the public and health workers themselves to ensure both the accessibility and affordability of healthcare services. Funding for health and medical facilities are vital to the health and well-being of the public.

But most importantly, health and medical researchers and developers serve the task of advancing health care and medical science through the study and proper dissemination of information, in order to improve the state of health care service of any country.”- text from GHC 2017.

Furthermore, wider demographic changes and transformations in the labour market have posed vast economic challenges for the management of occupational safety and health.
