Dear colleagues, students, and participants,
As Indonesia’s leading higher institution in public health, Faculty of Public Health Universitas Indonesia has determined our vision to be the center of excellence for knowledge, technology, public health education as well as actively involves in the development of public health profession and improvement of health status in both Indonesia and Asia. For that purposes, we continually encourage public health students to build awareness toward issues we are facing in public health by contributing in education, research, publication, and community engagement activities. To accommodate it, we raise The 2nd Faculty of Public Health Universitas Indonesia Science Festival (The 2nd FPH UI SciFes) which consists of The 4th International Meeting of Public Health (IMOPH) for post-graduate students and The 2nd Young Scholar Symposium on Public Health (YSSOPH) for undergraduate students.
Bringing Accelerating SDGs Achievement through Universal Health Coverage to Improve Public Health as the theme in The 2nd FPH UI SciFes, we would like to address public health concerns in a more holistic way-recognizing the evidence that we can no longer separate poor health from climate change, inadequate housing, gender disparities, and economic privation. To accelerate with SDGs issues, both The 4th IMOPH and The 2nd YSSOPH offer 13 topics ranging from Environmental and Occupation Health Issues, Maternal and Newborn Health, Technology, Communicable and Non Communicable Disease, Elderly and Mental Health, to Disaster Management.
I thank everyone for your participation and great contribution at The 2nd FPH UI SciFes. I hope from experiences, knowledge, and ideas that you share, we could face public health challenges and create a much better future together.

The 4th International Meeting of Public Health (IMOPH) and the 2nd Young Scholar Symposium on Public Health (YSSOPH) 2018 intend to help undergraduates and graduate students from diverse backgrounds in getting enthusiasm about the field of Public Health. There are too few opportunities for students to learn about and engage with public health professionals. Many public health practitioners have little understanding of the diversity within the field. Most students think of a job in health as being limited to physicians and nurses. This is the appropriate time to gain the opportunity by spending two days at the Faculty of Public Health, Universitas Indonesia (FPH UI); or Fakultas Kesehatan Masyarakat Universitas Indonesia (FKM UI), one of the schools of public health in South-East Asia and the first Faculty of Public Health in Indonesia; and to interact with current leaders who will inspire young students to become leaders in public health.
The 4th IMOPH promotes Public Health as an Art and Science to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Indonesia, and at the same time increases understanding on how SDGs can play significant roles in improving our healthy future. This conference provides a forum to present research reports and publications about public health interrelated theories and applications in nation-wide programs, as well as at province, district, and local village levels. With this conference, scholars are expected to present major contributions regarding ideas, designs, models, and strategies that can support public health progress.
In order to comprehensively tackle on-going and future public health challenges, the 2nd YSSOPH promotes continuous training of the next generation of leaders in public health. Public health as a discipline is constantly evolving, not only in the face of emerging and re-emerging challenges from infectious diseases but also non-infectious diseases as a result of our modern life complexities.
Both meetings invite new and long-standing scholars in Public Health to remain cross-disciplinary, able to analyze and solve problems from multiple perspectives, focus on people-centered problems (i.e., Universal Health Coverage), and commit to research that improves the health status of all people, taking into consideration statistical and epidemiological evidences, economic consequence, sociological acceptance, and policy implication.
FPH UI is committed to focus on research that improves the health of populations in Indonesia and the Asia region. Through these two important meetings, FPH UI extends its reach to more partners in Asia to jointly meet present and new public health challenges and would like to welcome you to the 4th IMOPH 2018 and the 2nd YSSOPH 2018 to be held from the 22nd to the 23rd October 2018 in Depok campus, West Java, Indonesia. The Conference will facilitate the participation of public health leaders from national and international organizations, academia, government, and the industry.
