Welcome Message by Chairman, Organising Council

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organising Council, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the Raffles Dialogue on the Future of Human Well-Being and Security (HWS), 2nd and 3rd February 2015 in Singapore. This is the first time that Singapore will be hosting this meeting.

In an increasingly troubled, unstable, and inequitable world, human well-being and security (HWS) is a key concern facing all countries, rich and poor alike. Achieving HWS is clearly dependent on successfully tackling multiple challenges which are central to sustainable and equitable human development, including mitigating the ill-effects of globalisation, dealing with climate change and the health of the planet as a whole, developing effective and relevant technologies through a robust research endeavour, delivering quality healthcare and education, alleviating poverty and inequity, ensuring international cooperation and goodwill, and building effective global institutions which provide strong governance.

The Raffles Dialogue will bring together leading global thought- and opinion-leaders to vigorously deliberate on some of these key issues through plenary lectures and moderated panel discussions. The Dialogue builds on Singapore’s success in hosting the World Health Summit’s first meeting in Asia in April 2013 and we hope to develop future Dialogues to analyse and debate a spectrum of HWS issues of concern to all nations, especially those in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Dialogue also commemorates the 110th anniversary of the National University of Singapore’s Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and the 10th anniversary of the Mexico Ministerial Summit on Health Research.

My Organising Council and I look forward to welcoming you to the Raffles Dialogue 2015 in Singapore!
