It is with immense pleasure that we present before you the second Amrita International Public Health Conference. The theme this year is “Gender, Public Health and Clinical Care: evidence-informed practice”. The conference is scheduled on 25 and 26 November 2019 at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Kochi.

Clinical medicine strives to give the best care to the individual patient whereas public health is about the greater good for the greater number. Bridging this requires stronger Health Systems which in turn needs technology assessment for evidence-informed decision making. Though women form an important part of the health workforce, they lag behind in access and utilization of health care. The gender underpinnings of health cannot be overemphasized in this context.

Hospital based care alone cannot mitigate the health problems of the new millennium. The good practices and experience from clinical care should be cemented with promotive and preventive care at the community level. The Sustainable Development Goals 2030 are a landmark that all countries are striving to achieve. Strengthening health systems, health technology assessment and gender mainstreaming can help to achieve SDG 2030.

The conference will discuss these and more. We welcome you all to join this network of people who can make the world a better place to live in.
