On behalf of the Hong Kong College of Family Physicians and Hong Kong Primary Care Conference 2021 Organizing Committee, we are delighted to announce our annual signature event that will be held online from 30 July – 1 August 2021.
As the world including Hong Kong continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, a robust primary health care is all the more needed to provide a critical first line of defense and response to keep the community safe and healthy. This year’s theme, “Our Finest Hour: Stride through the Storm” highlights the emergence of an even stronger primary health care. Throughout this pandemic our primary health providers can be seen as part of the cornerstone of the global response and recovery from this invisible enemy. We are part of the most inclusive, effective and efficient taskforce which has been deployed to safeguard the health of our people and communities.
Amidst the COVID-19 challenges with its issues of social distancing and infection control concerns, our 2020 HKPCC digital conference has proven to be a successful platform in bringing together over 700 participants from the primary care community. Our 2021 program is no exception when it comes to providing an educational and inspiring experience for our delegates. It will continue as a fertile milieu for bringing together international and local experts, family physicians, nurses and other primary care providers to promote collaborative and networking opportunities. Our program will offer a range of live and riveting sessions with plenary and seminar speakers, including evaluation of the challenges of COVID-19, clinical updates, research education and many more diverse yet interesting topics.
I am confident that this digital conference will continue to surprise and excite you all!
