Volume 41 Number 23 page 17-17

The World Psychiatric Association is holding a regional conference in Nairobi, Kenya, from March 21 to 27, 2007.

The theme of the conference is "Mental Health in Development." Topics include the provision of mental health care in countries with few resources; mental health services within general health services; mental health economics and policies; HIV, the brain, and development; mental health workforce issues; and psychopathology, disability, and well-being.

Pedro Ruiz, M.D., president of APA and secretary of meetings for the WPA, is encouraging APA members to attend. "This meeting will provide an excellent opportunity to American psychiatrists to experience cutting-edge psychiatry in the cradle of mankind under the overall theme of mental health services in development," he said.

The conference will be held in the Safari Park Hotel, about 15 minutes from downtown Nairobi and 30 minutes from Nairobi National Park. Participants will be able to go on safari before or after the conference, as well as visit famous game parks in eastern Africa.
