The 6th ASEAN Conference on Primary Healthcare with the theme “Challenges in Primary Care” is a maiden venture in cooperation between the private and public sector doctors in Perak. The theme and its timing could not have been more appropriate given the very suspect economic climate and the challenges it has thrown to developing nations.

In our own national context with the changed political reality, this move for amalgamated efforts in healthcare education should equip us better to deal with the forces of the day.

Not only a threat to our economic well being, the current period is a threat to us physically (hopefully not from terrorists) because of the global nature of disease and the constant shrinkage of our environment. The world as we perceive it today is a far cry from the one we were used to as children. With incessant changes thrust upon us there is a definite need for us to equip ourselves with new skills in managing the problems in healthcare delivery with a constant effort to provide novel solutions and to opt for change wherever indicated.

The 6th ASEAN Conference on Primary Healthcare from March 27-29, 2009 at the Impiana Casuarina Hotel, Ipoh, Perak is a big step in this direction i.e. to provide medical practitioners of today with upgraded skills and knowledge to face these challenges. All the topics have been carefully selected with due weightage to the needs of different disciplines as experienced by the primary care practitioners in their day-to-day practice. In addition to lectures and symposia, provocative, interactive sessions have been arranged where possible to stimulate free discussion amongst participants and the faculty. The speakers chosen are all masters in their area of expertise who would have many tips to share on current management. All in all, this conference promises to offer much in terms of course content and should more than justify the theme and the registration fee.

We, the organising committee have also designed the conference programme so as to provide all participants with enough time and opportunity to savour the culinary delights and scenic beauty for which the vicinity of Ipoh is famous without the pressure cooker atmosphere of a bustling city. Come and enjoy our hospitality and take back fresh ideas and fond memories from the Bougainvillea city.
