Regional Conference on Local Knowledge 2013 – RCLK 2013

Regional Conference on Local Knowledge 2014
“Local Knowledge : Synergy – Sustainability – Dynamism

12th – 13th October 2014
Riverside Majestic,
Kuching,  MALAYSIA

Local knowledge refers to knowledge and expertise which originate from local and indigenous cultures that have developed over time and from which practices that are absorbed naturally and effortlessly into the local communities. It is an accumulation of collective knowledge from lived experiences over long periods of time. Such wisdom traces its origins from local Malaysian cultures specifically, and cultures of the Malay Archipelago in general. The study on local knowledge is aimed at enabling social transformation through a paradigm shift that forefronts local epistemology.

Health & Place – Journal – Elsevier

An International Journal

The journal is an interdisciplinary journal dedicated to the study of all aspects of health and health care in which place or location matters.

Recent years have seen closer links evolving between medical geography, medical sociology, health policy, public health and epidemiology. The journal reflects these convergences, which emphasise differences in health and health care between places, the experience of health and care in specific places, the development of health care for places, and the methodologies and theories underpinning the study of these issues.

The journal brings together international contributors from geography, sociology, social policy and public health. It offers readers comparative perspectives on the difference that place makes to the incidence of ill-health, the structuring of health-related behaviour, the provision and use of health services, and the development of health policy.

At a time when health matters are the subject of ever-increasing attention, Health & Place provides accessible and readable papers summarizing developments and reporting the latest research findings.
