Introduction

“The 1st International and 19th National Conference on Environmental Health and Sustainable Development”, hosted by Tehran University of Medical Science, will be held 22-24 October 2016 in Tehran, I.R. Iran. The conference is a great opportunity for experts, policymakers and executive managers, especially domestic and foreign environmental health specialists, to meet and exchange experiences, present the latest scientific achievements and also to investigate mutual challenges, opportunities and plans accordingly. This conference builds upon a series of national environmental health conferences of previous years hosted by various universities of medical sciences from across the country. This year, EHSDG will incorporate an international perspective, aiming to organize environmental health diplomacy through effective utilization of domestic and foreign capacities and capabilities. Bilateral dialogue, presentation of technology and scientific solutions will target to improve environmental health status and its association with sustainable development, both at the national and international levels. The 3 days event will host main stakeholders involved in or concerned with environmental health, including senior faculty members, students, experts, specialists and other scholars and executive managers both from Iran and around the globe.

We look forward to seeing you in Tehran during the conference.

 

Yours sincerely,
