Malta

It is our pleasure to invite you to join this congress in Malta 'Universal Health and Mental Health Coverage for All - 
Connecting People and Sharing Perspectives.'

Why Universal Health and Mental Health Coverage for All?

The United Nations has reaffirmed the right to be the most achievable standard of physical 
and mental health without distinction as to race, religion, political belief, economic or social condition, and to the full range of 
factors that support well -being.

Attaining this goal requires social integration and mental health access to all.

Mental health stigma and discrimination continues to be a barrier to access to good health for many people with a mental health 
condition. Public attitudes to people with mental health 
conditions are often negative. This is how it works and how it 
deals with physical health and mental health 
interventions.

For many people with long-term physical health conditions co-morbid mental ill health is becoming increasingly common. In order 
to obtain the best outcomes in long-term physical health conditions there is a need to address the mental health co-morbidity 
using a range of interventions, including addressing the determinants of health.

This congress builds on the 2015 International Congress in Lille 'Mental Health for All - Connecting People and 
Sharing Experience' and endorsing the values of the United Nations Declaration on Universal Health Coverage. It wants to bring 
together stakeholders with an interest in health, mental health, wellbeing and social care.

We are inviting you to Malta especially as Valletta is one of the 2018 EU Capitals of Culture.

The Universal Health Coverage Day will take place 
from 12th - 14th December 2018.

We look forward to welcoming you to join us in Malta
