WELCOME MESSAGE


We welcome you to the 2020 Asia Pacific Forum for Environmental Health Assessment (APF-EHA 2020), hosted by the Climate, Air Quality Research Unit at Monash University. The Forum brings together academics, researchers, policy makers, health professionals and students to share knowledge and improve human health in the face of environmental pollution, climate change and urbanisation in the Asia-Pacific region. 
 
This region is particularly vulnerable to the adverse consequences of these changes. More than half of the world’s population and nearly two-thirds of the world’s poor reside in the area, which contains almost 70 of the world’s 100 most polluted cities. 
 
The exciting conference program will see talks from world leaders in the field from Monash University, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, The Colorado School of Public Health and China’s Centre for Disease Control and Prevention. Our speakers will share innovative new epidemiological methods to assess the impacts of climate change and environmental pollution on human health. Monitoring and extrapolating this information allows policy makers and health service providers to adapt and plan for future healthcare needs. 

The Asia Pacific Cohort Consortium for Environmental Health Effects will be formally launched at the event, marking the establishment of the largest collaborative network in the Asia Pacific region to explore environmental health impacts. This exciting new project aims to provide evidence-based knowledge supporting the development of healthy environments across the Asia Pacific region.
 
Host city Melbourne is a vibrant city that’s beautiful, easy to get around and is home to some of the best coffee, dining and drinking opportunities in the world. Melbourne is Australia’s cultural and sporting heart, providing delegates with ample sightseeing and tourist opportunities. 

We look forward to meeting you in Melbourne in 2020!
