There is an increasing concern regarding global health as we face various health challenges. It is evident that a transformation in the global health approach is urgently needed to tackle communicable as well as non-communicable diseases and healthcare disparities that become problems in many countries.

The global health transformation begins with a shift towards prevention and public health strategies. By focusing on proactive actions, including those arising from environmental hazards and risks, the burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases can be significantly reduced. Prioritizing prevention by empowering individuals and communities to take responsibility for their health can reduce the burden on the health care system, leading to better health outcomes and reduced healthcare costs in the long term. In addition, strengthening health information systems and surveillance capabilities using real-time detection program enables health personnel to take evidence-based decision.

Collaborative partnerships between governments, health agencies and international organizations are critical to supporting efforts to strengthen health systems globally. In that matter, the Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Brawijaya (FKUB) collaborates with The George Institute (TGI), University of Manchester (UM), and NIHR, we held Brawijaya Medical Conference (BMC) with the topic of "Transforming Global Health to Tackle Interdisciplinary Health Challenges". Plenary sessions and panels were delivered by primary health care intervention experts and biomedical sciences to discuss smart health and environmental hazards, especially in non-communicable diseases. There were two parallel sessions that provided opportunities for participants to present and publish their work in reputable journals, specifically in Public Health and Biomedical and Clinical aspects. This conference was attended by over 150 participants from ten countries, with sixteen invited speakers in the keynote, plenary, and parallel sessions. We have also received thirty-eight abstracts, which were presented and discussed in the research highlights. Thus, this conference brought forward the updates and new perspectives on health issues by providing a platform for discussion among colleagues in the multidisciplinary sector.
