The overall goal of the Third International Scientific Conference on Occupational and Environmental Health was to enhance occupational and environmental health research and professional capacity in the rapidly industrializing countries in Southeast Asia. The primary focus of the conference was the four Southeast Asian countries-Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos-that are active partners with the University of Washington Collaborative Center for Healthy Workplace and Environment (formerly, International Scholars in Occupational and Environmental Health-ISOEH). However, presenters were welcome from throughout the world. The conference took place at the Fortuna Hotel, a handicap accessible hotel, (one of the few that could be contracted in Hanoi). The conference built on the experience of two previous International Scientific Conferences, held in Hanoi in 2003 and 2005. It was organized collaboratively by the same institutions responsible for the previous conferences-the University of Washington, the Vietnam National Institute of Occupational and Environmental health (NIOEH), and the Vietnam Association of Occupational Health (VINAOH). The specific aims of the conference were to: 1. Bring together researchers and practitioners from Southeast Asian countries and countries throughout the world to present research papers on high priority occupational and environmental health problems encountered in industrializing countries. 2. Build on existing partnerships and foster new ones that will increase the capacity in Southeast Asian countries to address occupational and environmental health problems. 3. Provide an international venue for scientists and professionals in the region to discuss the occupational and environmental health and safety needs and capabilities of the region. 4. Provide an opportunity for public discussion of workplace and environmental regulatory issues facing countries with rapidly expanding economies. A secondary goal of the conference will be to further establish visibility of the Vietnam National Institute of Occupational and Environmental Health as a regional center of excellence for occupational and environmental health.
