It is my pleasure to congratulate for opening the 6th International Conference on Community Health Nursing.

I would like to extend my thanks to Insook Lee, the chairman of ICCHNR committee, and Jeong Soon Kim, the President of Korean Academy of Community Health Nursing for providing valuable input in developing this conference. Also, I would like to express my gratitude to Fiona Ross, the president of ICCHNR in UK and Sally Kendall, Patricia Wilson, Ros Bryar(co-convenors), and Clair Goodman, the members of ICCHNR committee for travelling long distances to be here with us today.

Korean Academy of Community Health Nursing has contributed to developing community health policies and solving public health issues, such as community health, school health, occupational health, home healthcare, agricultural health, multicultural health etc. Furthermore, it has taken an important role in strengthening cooperation for the partnership of many countries for public health nursing.

Recently, we have faced global issues that have threatened our public health, such as the spread of MERS, a new type of virus, global warming, environmental pollution, natural disasters and etc. Also, with the growing trend of chronic diseases caused by irregular lifestyles, it is our urgent task to develop an effective policy for prevention and management of chronic diseases.

Public health problems mentioned above are not limited to any single country, but it is a common issue for the world. Therefore we believe that today’s conference will provide a perfect opportunity to share information on such issues and build cooperative relationships.

Today’s conference will focus discussions on strengthening health promotion in order to solve health risk problems according to life-course. Furthermore, if we can create an environment to implement today’s discussion as we face population aging, we will be able to live a more prosperous life.

It is my hope that this conference could bring out a productive discussion on public policy and practice and once again, congratulations on the International Conference on Community Health Nursing.
