The Indonesian Ministry of Health will host the 6th TEPHINET Southeast Asia and Western Pacific Bioregional Scientific Conference to be held in Bali November 8-11, 2011 at the Nusa Dua Convention Center.

Adopting the theme "Global Surveillance Networking for Global Health" this will be the first time Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET) will hold a conference in Indonesia.

Organizers point to the unprecedented mobility of human communities resulting from modern transportation systems as driving the need for a better understanding of how diseases are transmitted. The concern of the group includes not only contagious disease, but also illnesses spread by natural disasters. H1N1, nuclear contamination and the pollution of water and air are all issues of importance confronted by modern epidemiologists.

Professor Dr. Tjandra Yoga Aditama, director general of Disease Control and Environmental Health at the Health Ministry, told the press on March 25, 2011 that surveillance has assumed a primary role in global health and in preventing the uncontrollable spread of a contagion.

TEPHINET is an international network of epidemiologists dedicated to improving education and technical competence in the battle against communicable disease.

The Bali conference is expected to attract 700 participants from 40 countries.
