Mr. Monzur Hossain

Mr. Monzur HossainGreetings to the urban health global network!  It is my pleasure to extend invitation to the International Conference on Urban Health 2015 to take place in Dhaka, Bangladesh, May 24-27, 2015.  I am honored to kindly participate as the chairman of the organizing committee.   I anticipate a very insightful, profound, and productive conference and expect quality discussion and presentation from urban health professionals, students, researchers, and supports from all over the globe.

The response we have received thus far is a great indication for the success of this event.  Hosting the event in Bangladesh is a great opportunity to share some of the urban health related development challenges of South Asia and of developing countries.  This is an imperative time for establishing urban health in the sustainable development agenda as we move into the post-2015 era.  Recognizing the intrinsic link between health, wellbeing, and design will surely pave the way for a sustainable future.

I wish all the conference participants the richest experience and utmost enjoyment in Bangladesh.


Best regards,


Mr. Monzur Hossain
Senior Secretary
Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development and Cooperative
