Status Update

Dear All,

Due to unforeseen delays in the processing of donor financial support that would assure the broadest possible participation by individuals from the region and from developing countries internationally, a decision is arrived at to reschedule the 2015 International Conference on Urban Health (ICUH) to May 24-27, 2015, with exact dates to be confirmed early this week.

The ICUH 2015 Secretariat in Bangladesh, reachable at, will be communicating with plenary speakers, scholarship recipients and registered participants in the next week about rescheduling travel arrangements. All elements of the Scientific Program – 8 plenary sessions, 32 breakout sessions, including a special track on reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child health, 12 poster sessions, 16 special side sessions and four pre-conference workshops will move ahead as planned. We hope very much that all confirmed speakers, oral and poster session presenters, special session organizers and honored guests will be able to participate on the new dates.

The conference host– the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh, organizers — Eminence Associates for Social Development and the Bangladesh Urban Health Network, and co-organizers – The New York Academy of Medicine, The International Society for Urban Health and Urban Primary Health Care Services Delivery Project, together look forward to a very-well attended and fruitful conference with even wider global participation and express our sincere hope that your schedule will allow you to join us in May 24-27, 2015. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and seek your cooperation. Read More
