It is my pleasure to welcome you to the III World Congress on Gynecology & Pediatrics-2016 to be held from the 23rd, 24th & 25th November, 2016 at J.N.TATA Auditorium, Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, Karnataka.
Women and children's health is the precondition and foundation of sustained human development. Women and children's health indicators are not only the most fundamental world-recognized health indicators, but also the important comprehensive indicators to measure socioeconomic development and human development.During the "Eleventh Five-Year Plan" period, the national maternal, infant and under-five child mortality rates decreased respectively from 47.7/100,000, 19.0 ‰ and 22.5‰ in 2005 to 30.0/100,000, 13.1‰ and 16.4‰ in 2010. However, there are still significant gaps in women and children's health between urban and rural areas, between different population groups and between different regions, problems threatening the health of women and children are still serious, and there is a relative lack of service capacity in the grassroots women and children's health system.
Maternal health is closely linked to newborn survival. While great strides have been made in reducing global child mortality, newborns now account for 44 percent of all childhood deaths. Each year, 2.9 million newborns needlessly die within their first month and an additional 2.6 million are stillborn. The main causes, which are preventable and treatable, are complications due to prematurity, complications during delivery, and infection.
Proven, high-impact interventions are available, but they are not reaching all of the women and newborns who need them. Although facility births are increasing in all regions and income groups, quality of care at birth remains a major challenge. Many women give birth at home and may not see a skilled health worker before or after delivery. Skilled health workers often lack access to critical supplies and medicines.
To promote such development and protect women and children's health, the joint efforts of the whole society are needed. III World Congress on Gynecology & Pediatrics-2016 is being organized in the hope of reflecting the whole picture of the health status of women and children and the women and children's health development, and to guide all circles in the society and the international community to pay more attention to the health of women and children, and create a good atmosphere favorable to women and children's health development.
The World Congress is held every year and can be considered as an important meeting in obstetrics, gynaecology and pediatrics as the best scientists, clinicians, teachers and other allied health specialties who care for women& child health throughout their life will assemble to present the latest science and best clinical practice. The scientific advisory board is making a very constructive programme by leaving no stone unturned. They have consulted national and regional societies and federations, special interest groups, other global organizations looking after subspecialties in our field and international organizations to devise the best programme for clinical practice and research. We are working hard to provide the best experience for every participant scientifically and socially. BioGenesis Health Cluster would be delighted to have as many of you as possible in Bengaluru for the III World Congress on Gynecology & Pediatrics-2016 on 23rd, 24th & 25th November, 2016 at J.N.TATA Auditorium, Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India.
