KIT is delighted to partner with ECTMIH2023 in Utrecht this year! The conference will be from 20 to 23 November, and we look forward to collaborating with them to deliver their vision for 2023.
Grappling with a rapidly changing planet and deteriorating climate
The theme for 2023 will be: Shaping the future of equitable and sustainable planetary health
Given the rise in extreme weather events across the globe and the resulting loss of thousands of lives, we need to take urgent action to deal with the extensive damage that humans have caused. We need to acknowledge that our health is inextricably linked to the health of the planet.
As KIT, our aim at ECTMIH 2023, is to contribute our knowledge and expertise to improve the understanding, and appreciate the connections between tropical medicine, global health, and the urgent field of planetary health.
We will host ten sessions, give presentations and even host a post-conference Power of Knowledge (PoK) discussion at our historical building in Amsterdam. We hope our contributions will form the building blocks on which together we can build on global health traditions to emphasise the importance of health equity and universal health coverage to ensure that all populations – and especially those in low(er) resource settings – have optimal chances of health and wellbeing.
