Manuscript Topics
8th World Alliance for Risk Factor Surveillance (WARFS) Global Conference – 2013

The World Alliance for Risk Factor Surveillance (WARFS) 2013 Global Conference was held from October 29 to November 1, 2013 in Beijing, China. WARFS is the Global Working Group on surveillance of the International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE). The 2013 Global Conference was co-hosted by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CCDC) and the Chinese Preventive Medicine Association (CPMA). With more than 200 participants from 16 countries, the WARFS Beijing Conference was one of the most attended WARFS conferences since inception in 1999 in Atlanta, USA. The theme of the 2013 global conference was the past, present and future of risk factor surveillance.

The 2013 global conference has made significant contributions to global NCD risk factor surveillance on several fronts. It opens up the conceptual thinking of risk factor surveillance: in time, by going back to the past to learn lessons for the future; in space, by exchanging experiences from developed and developing countries; and in content, by blending theory and practice.
