The Millennium Development Goals (MDG), include improvement in Health. To further improve health of the people, Primary Care as the spearhead of health services development must be strengthened.
In the 2nd ASEAN Regional Primary Care Conference and Exhibition, we have chosen the theme "Achieving MDG through Primary Care", because we want to reach the health related MDG objectives, by returning to the values, principles and approaches of Primary Care.
It is indeed a great honor and privilege to invite you to attend and actively participate in this conference, which will take place in Jakarta Convention Center, at Capital City of Indonesia, Jakarta, on 12-14 November 2009.
Most of the ASEAN countries are either implementing, or developing or evaluating their own Primary Care Systems. It is therefore important to organize a conference and exchange our experiences at an International meeting.
By attending this conference, you have the opportunity to meet your colleagues and communicate, besides learning and having discussion with world-class experts in Primary Care. Our sincerest appreciation to the special guests for their acceptance and willingness of sharing their expertise in this conference.
Scientific programs are designed to face the challenges in managing Primary Care, and we are confident that your participation in this conference will be a rewarding experience.
Lastly, the pleasure of visiting Jakarta, should be a strong reason to come to the conference.
Looking forward to welcoming you in November 2009
Dr. Ferlinda Nasution, MM, PKK
Chairperson of Organizing Committee
