Conference Program +

The International Summit will take place on December 24-25, 2019, in Karachi, and December 28-29, 2019 in Islamabad with pre and post conference events planned for December 23rd and 30th. This follows an impressive 9th International conference held in Florida, USA in 2017 and the outstanding 8th International Conference in Iran in 2015 that was attended by almost 700 delegates from around the world. This CME conference combines IMI’s commitments to enhancing health, education, capacity building, and the integration of global community and faith-based approaches to health. For the third time, we are also hosting the Young Leaders (YL) Conference simultaneously with the International Conference.

PAKISTAN – Progress & Advancement Through Knowledge, Integration, Science, Technology And Networking

The theme of the conference is PAKISTAN – Progress and Advancement Through Knowledge, Integration, Science, Technology And Networking. This conference is being carefully crafted to combine our commitment to enhancing health, education, capacity building and the integration of global community based approaches to health. As with all our conferences, international continuing medical education (CME) credits will be available to all attendees. This pivotal 10th International Conference is already attracting collaboration by universities and attendees from a wide range of civil society organizations, health policy organizations, government officials, health professionals, medical researchers, intellectuals and scholars. The Young Leaders’ sessions are designed to develop the leadership capacity of students and younger professionals. The majority of YL sessions will be equally relevant to our diverse audience regardless of career choice. The skills developed and topics explored will translate across all disciplines, like conflict resolution, communication and presentation skills. The full program will be available shortly.
