Interviewed

Dr Helen Keleher
"We've never had a global public congress in Melbourne, but Melbourne is actually a public health city, and there's a huge amount of health and medical research that goes on around Melbourne and I think that has been a big attraction for delegates coming here."

Rüdiger Krech, Director for Health Systems and Innovation, World Health Organization
"Melbourne is a wonderful host, and this conference centre has all the things we need for a good conference"

Hon Martin Foley MP, Victorian Minister for Mental Health
"Melbourne is such a hub of intellectual powerhouse thought and activity, behind medical research, medical practice and medical application..."

Michael Moore, Chief Executive Officer Public Health Association of Australia
"... As everyone tells us Melbourne is the most livable city, and you actually see that and feel that. This has been a fabulous opportunity and the location of Melbourne has made it really, really effective."
