With overwhelming participation in the previous conferences and excellent feedback from the participants, we are encouraged and motivated to work harder and extend our warm welcome to all the aspiring health professionals to participate in the 3rd ICMH 2017.

Besides well addressed master theme, we have Pre-Conference Workshop addressing on various sub-themes. I am optimistic that both the Pre-Conference Workshop and the Conference will be educative and beneficial for the health professionals from within and outside the country.
