It gives me great pleasure to invite you to the International Family Medicine Conference & Exhibition, an annual event which focuses on the realms of Family Medicine and how its different aspects cover varied age groups, genders, disease prevention, rehabilitation and the integrated role between the primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare in the Middle East.
In its progressive year, the International Family medicine Conference has advanced its reach and scope to cover specialized topics such as Health Prevention and Promotion, Cardiac Diseases & its Perils, Prevention and Awareness, Mental Health, Elderly care and Leadership within the Primary Health Care. These topics have been selected based on the growing needs of the community and in a bid to bring about more awareness on preventive services; biological, behavioral and in a social setup.
Our efforts to establish a convenient forum for family medicine practitioners and allied health care professionals is well reinforced by the active participation of healthcare providers and related agencies including pharma companies, medical centers and leading medical institutions at the exhibition.
We look forward to welcome all family physicians, scientists, paramedical, researchers, product specialists, young innovators, decision makers and trade visitors to this three day health forum, which aims at better health, better community and better wellbeing for one and all.
IFM facilitates knowledge transfer and networking and brings about a civic health consciousness, thereby reducing emergencies and encouraging preventive care.
Enjoy your stay in Dubai and have a memorable participation at IFM.

On behalf of the entire team of the International Family Medicine Conference and Exhibition – IFM; I take this opportunity to thank all healthcare and allied service professionals for joining us this year in the third edition of the IFM 2016.
Our utmost priority through this event is to enhance the health sector in the UAE, through strengthening the concept of Family Medicine among the society and educating the community on common medical emergencies, curative measures and areas that require comprehensive care. We strive to provide the best knowledge and expertise derived from different parts of the world, while focusing on presenting new and innovative topics.
This year, the topics have been selected attractively to engage more family medicine specialists. Topics on Medical Tourism, Occupational and Mental Health, Fighting Childhood Obesity and Elderly Care will feature among discussions. The exhibition which has expanded with a 25% increase from its previous two editions will witness participation of renowned healthcare players.
IFM proves to be a perfect platform for delivering primary health care and presents a unique opportunity for family medicine practitioners and professionals from all facets of medicine, to interact with each other, share advancements and common concerns of their profession.
I wish you all a very successful networking.
