Topic 1

Addressing Public Health Needs Amidst Armed Conflict: A Humanitarian Perspective

The destruction of infrastructure due to war conflicts often leads to severe shortages of local medical services, posing daunting humanitarian medical challenges for affected areas and international relief efforts. Given the escalation of regional political turmoil in recent years, effective responses and strategies to armed conflicts at the international level are increasingly crucial.

Topic 2

Youth Empowerment in Global Health: Strategies, Initiatives, and Impact

International health affairs require the cultivation of youth participation and empowerment. Youth will eventually become the backbone of future societies, nations, and the international community, bearing the responsibility for the future. Their participation adds diverse perspectives, essential for advancing thoughts and refreshing ideas.
