On behalf of the local organising committee, we would like to invite you to attend Precision Public Health Asia 2018 (PPH Asia 2018), to be held 18 and 19 October 2018 in Fremantle, Western Australia.

Precision public health has gained significant traction and forward momentum these past few years however, is yet to be expanded to populations in Asia. Having identified a need for further collaboration in this arena, The University of Western Australia, in partnership with the Western Australia Department of Health and other like-minded organisations, will be hosting this ground-breaking event.

PPH Asia 2018 aims to build upon the current state of play by promoting collaboration amongst a broad range of stakeholders. This will be achieved through uniting public health practitioners, academics, researchers, policy makers, industry leaders and consumer advocacy groups to build strong foundations for future partnerships. The challenges and opportunities to advance precision public health will also be explored, and delegates will be provided an opportunity to influence the way forward for precision public health in Asia and beyond.

We look forward to having your presence at this important event.
