2015 Conference

The 5th International Conference on Global Health: 2015 Conference

The International Conference on Global Health, hosted by the Global Health Consortium, is aimed at addressing the much-neglected tropical diseases in this region. Tropical diseases, as defined by the World Health Organization, encompasses all diseases that occur either solely or predominantly in the tropics. In practice, the term is often taken to refer to infectious diseases that thrive in hot, humid conditions, and that contribute to almost one-half of all deaths in the topics. With Miami serving as the gateway to all of Central and South America, we are poised to take leadership in promoting research, training, and treatment of diseases prevalent in America’s tropical regions. We hope that increased awareness and our strategic location will provide the impetus to grow in this area of research.
