Annonce

Bonn, Germany

9 – 13 July 2007

The world’s nature and societies are developing continuously. Changes include the alteration of physical, social and mental environments, of demography and economy, of policies, persuasions and faiths. All of these changes can intensively impact individual health, health behaviour, health care systems and, from a holistic perspective, the public health of societies.

We would like to encourage your participation in this symposium so that we may collaboratively explore and analyse the geographical patterns and perspectives of change and continuity for human health under the unsettled conditions of the world in the 21st century.
