Sustainability and Resilience Conference: Mitigating Risks and Emergency Planning

The Sustainability and Resilience Conference is an annual conference organized by the Deanship of Graduate Studies and Scientific Research at the University of Bahrain (UOB), and under the patronage of His Excellency, Prof. Ryadh Hamzah, President of the UOB. The concept of “Sustainability and Resilience” in itself is not new worldwide, yet still new to the Middle East region in general, and to the Gulf states in particular. In 2018, the first edition of the conference is conducted in collaboration with the Northumbria University in the United Kingdom and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), and is dedicated to the main theme of “Mitigating Disaster and Emergency Planning” in three vital sectors: (1) Energy and Engineering, (2) Health and Science, and (3) Cyber Security and Networks. The conference is a great opportunity for positioning Bahrain as a “Regional Hub” for sustainability and resilience and provides participants (both academics and practitioners) with gigantic opportunities for knowledge sharing and experience exchange that would eventually accumulate in setting new policies and strategies.

International Conference of Occupational Health and Safety (ICOHS 2017)

Work has an impact on the safety and health of humans working in organizations. The organizations are influenced by the socio-political context. Organizations may be considered a system that may contain hazards, and which must be controlled to minimize the risk. Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) becomes a necessity for developing countries including Indonesia in ensuring that its citizens live and work in a healthy and safe environment. OHS also becomes a necessity for industries or certain activities in operating productively. A few such industries are: 

• Formal industry sectors (oil and gas, mining, construction, etc.) 

• Informal sectors (small–medium enterprises) 

• Public service sectors (hospital, logistic, freight forwarding service, etc.) 

In answering the global challenges that come from the current era upon OHS necessities in some industrial sectors and activities, Occupational Health and Safety Department, Faculty of Public Health, Universitas Indonesia, answers those necessities through developing and organizing scientific activities, researches, and community services. The department has developed five scholarly, research activities, and community services by forming peer groups, which are: 

• Occupational Health 

• Occupational Safety 

• Ergonomics 

• Industrial Hygiene 

• Human and Psychosocial Aspects 

Bearing in mind that the necessities in related sectors and the moral responsibility as an educational institute in delivering, spreading, and educating people on OHS's importance as values that are worth fighting in answering global challenges, the ICOHS 2017 forum was organized to unite academics, researchers, practitioners, industries, and policymakers.

The 2nd International Meeting of Public Health 2016 (IMOPH)

The International Meeting of Public Health (IMOPH) is an international conference that was originally held as an expression of ASEAN public health students in implementing the Tri Dharma Pillars, especially in research. This international conference was also a means to establish cooperation among researchers, especially those who come from abroad. The IMOPH was first implemented on 31 October 2015 and 1 November 2015 in Indonesia with participants from five countries comprising undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers, and practitioners. The 1st IMOPH resulted in a commitment by the participants to organize it every year with Indonesia being its initiator from year 1 to year 3. Therefore, “The 2nd International Meeting of Public Health 2016” was organized with the theme “Public Health Perspective of Sustainable Development Goals: The Challenges and Opportunities in Asia-Pacific Region,”  and attempts have been made to expand the conference region from ASEAN to the ASIA-PACIFIC.

The 1st International Conference on Global Health

For the last decade, the top 10 causes of death across the world have shifted slightly. According to CDC (Center of Disease Control and Prevention), the deaths caused by communicable diseases have reduced and by non-communicable diseases have increased. This phenomenon is also happening in Indonesia. However, unlike in developed countries, the epidemiologic transition is not complete—communicable diseases remain a burden. The decline of communicable diseases is very modest, thus creating a double burden of diseases. Additionally, emerging infectious disease has also become a concern.

As the most reputed university in Indonesia, Universitas Indonesia, has taken into account to develop solutions to tackle these global health problems. This encouraged the University to actively seek global solutions and hold the 1st International Conference on Global Health—an event in which experts concerned and experienced with global health issues came together and held discussions. This conference will be held annually and is a distinguished event for experts, academicians, practitioners, and other people concerned about global health.
