17TH WORLD CONGRESS ON PUBLIC HEALTH – ROME 2023
A world in Turmoil: Opportunities to Focus on the Public's Health
The 17th World Congress on Public Health coincides with a critical juncture for our world.

Conflicts worldwide, from Ukraine to Afghanistan, from Syria to Ethiopia, to cite a few, have further destabilised the world, alongside the devastating consequences felt by all those directly affected.

No doubt, we are living in a world in turmoil.
