In recent decades, the burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) has emerged as a significant challenge to global health. Conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, and diabetes have become leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, posing substantial social, economic, and healthcare burdens. Traditional approaches to NCD prevention and management have often fallen short in addressing the complex interplay of factors contributing to their rise.

However, amidst these challenges, there is growing recognition of the importance of resilience in confronting the NCD epidemic. Resilience, in the context of health, refers to the capacity of individuals, communities, and health systems to adapt, recover, and thrive in the face of adversity. Building resilience offers a promising pathway toward more effective and sustainable strategies for NCD prevention and management.

This conference aims to explore innovative approaches to building resilience in the context of NCD prevention and management. By harnessing the power of innovation and technology, we have the opportunity to transform how we approach the prevention and management of NCDs. From leveraging digital health solutions to promoting community-based interventions, innovative strategies hold the potential to address the multifaceted challenges posed by NCDs.

Through this conference, we seek to bring together researchers, healthcare professionals, policymakers, and stakeholders from around the world to share insights, experiences, and best practices in building resilience against NCDs. By fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange, we aim to catalyse action towards a future where NCDs are effectively prevented and managed and where individuals and communities are empowered to lead healthier and more resilient lives.

To address these challenges and harness the power of innovation, we must bring together experts, scholars, and practitioners in the field of healthcare to share their knowledge and ideas. Poltekkes Kemenkes Bengkulu has held the International Conference since 2018, and this year Poltekkes Kemenkes Bengkulu is going to have another 4th International Conference known as Bengkulu International Conference on Health (B-ICON) 2024 under the theme "Building Resilience: Innovative Approaches to Non-communicable Disease".  It will provide a valuable platform for discussing the opportunities and challenges we are facing in the field and exploring ways to navigate through them and harness the power of innovation to build resilience.
