Our guest speaker will share HPA’s policies and strategies to enhance the overall health of Taiwan’s citizens. Nowadays modern lifestyles, food choices and pollution are all affecting and changing the health of citizens. Unless these issues are addressed, higher
spending on healthcare down the line is inevitable. Our speaker will elaborate on the HPA’s goals and strategies to encourage citizens to maintain an active lifestyle and ultimately create a healthier society. Among other topics, he will cover social, economic
and cultural factors, controlling or decreasing the risks and adverse effects of diseases, postponing the onset and compressing the length of disability and boosting the quality of life.
The current Health Promotion Administration (HPA) was known as the Bureau of Health Promotion under the Department of Health (now the Ministry of Health and Welfare). The HPA was officially launched in 2013.
The HPA provides comprehensive health promotion services “from the womb to the tomb”, promoting the health of individuals, families and communities. Its goal is to prolong health expectancy and reduce health inequality, so that citizens can live longer and
healthier lives. The scope of the HPA’s remit includes promoting healthy lifestyles, enhancing preventive healthcare services, promoting effective prevention and screening and improving chronic disease prognosis and control.
This event is open to all members and the public, and is special interest to members in the
Pharmaceutical, Medical Device, Cosmetics and Healthcare Enhancement committees.
The event will be conducted in English.
