Abstract

I am happy to be present here today at this Regional Conference on Public Health in the 21st Century. We are grateful to the World Health Organization for choosing Calcutta as the venue for the Conference involving all the countries of South-East Asia. It is important to bear in mind that Calcutta is the home of the oldest public health institution in the country - the All India Institute of Hygiene and Public Health.
