Background Message

Tropical Diseases are responsible for millions of death, especially in the Tropical regions of the World and one-sixth of the world population is infected with Neglected Tropical Diseases and additional two billion are at risk. Many of the major tropical disease includes Dengue fever, Malaria, typhoid, yellow fever, and many other. These diseases mainly are spread in the region of Africa, Asia and western pacific. Various means for the spread of these diseases are infections (Bacterial, Viral and fungal).

Moreover, population ageing, increased life expectancy, widespread exposure to an unhealthy diet and lack of physical activity mean that Non-Communicable diseases (NCDs) are now the leading causes of death and disability worldwide, including in low- and middle-income countries. As a result, NCDs are growing in importance as a major public health issue in humanitarian settings.

Medical health care providers, doctors, researchers, scientist and patients consider the prevention of these diseases as an essential requirement to improve the general health status of the people in the subtropical regions and developing countries. The essential emphasis on prevention requires a greater reliance on the social and life sciences. Realizing this situation and keeping in mind the need to start and promote various initiative and potential researches, Faculty of Medicine Syiah Kuala University organizes the 2nd Syiah Kuala International Conference on Medical and Health Science 2018 focusing on tropical medicine and non-communicable diseases during September 7-8, 2018 in Banda Aceh, Indonesia. . It provides a forum for knowledge and experience exchange and invites clinical experts, public health practitioners, medical scientists and researchers, decision makers and stakeholders from all part of society and all regions of the world to share their knowledge, experiences, concepts, best practices, and critical analysis with their international peers.
