Precision public health is an emerging field that utilises data to guide the right intervention to the right people at the right time. Recent technological advancements have made it possible to collect accurate individual- and population-level data on genes, environment, behaviour and other social and economic determinants of health. This has been demonstrated across a broad range of disciplines including genomics, spatial data, data linkage, epidemiology, health informatics, big data, predictive analytics and communications technologies.
With the theme ‘Discover, Share, Identify and Influence’, PPH Asia 2018 will bring together a core group of specialists and stakeholders to explore the concept of precision public health and consider the impact of recent technological advancements on health outcomes. The challenges and opportunities to advance the precision public health domain will also be explored, and delegates will be given an opportunity to influence the way forward for precision public health in Asia and beyond.
