Congratulations to all on making the 12th International Conference on Urban Health a grand success. On being taken responsibility as the president of the International Society for Urban Health for the next two years I would like to take this opportunity of welcoming all the members to this new executive board of the society and requesting to be a member to serve for the society. I hope and believe that in the upcoming time we will be able to form new collaborations, strengthen the networks, broaden our horizon in the arena of urban development to ensure to advance the generation, exchange, and application of high quality urban health knowledge across different stakeholders to attain health equity in urban settings worldwide.
This 12th International Conference on Urban Health held 24-27 May in Dhaka Bangladesh that brought together academic experts, program leaders and policy makers from multiple sectors in government and the private sector to promote trans-disciplinary and collaborative research, policy, and interventions, to forward international discussion of urban health issues, to build networks among individuals engaged in urban health, and to promote the understanding of the impact of urban areas on health and behavior.
I appreciate your continued support in making this meeting a success and welcome your feedback and participation in the future meetings for taking ahead the urban health agenda. Let us take pride in our efforts as we continue to move forward for sustainable urban health development.
Thank you again for being part of such a wonderful conference experience. There is nothing more powerful than when this community comes together to share ideas, experience, and hope.
We are so happy to have you as part of the family.
With warmest regards!,
