Welcome to 3ICHC,

The 3rd International Congress of Health Communication, to be held on 19th – 20th 2017 in Madrid (Spain), will be set in motion under the theme `Health in the 21st century´. Due to the success of previous editions (1st edition, 2nd edition), the University Carlos III of Madrid is organizing this scientific conference which is hereby becoming an international congress counting on the presence of speakers from international organizations and other entities outstanding in the area of communication and health. In addition, the same as in previous editions, abstract submission for free communications is open at 3ICHC, giving researchers and professionals the opportunity of sharing their work throughout conference presentations.

3ICHC will include several round tables, communications and papers regarding health communication. Topics such as communication in primary and specialized healthcare, public heatlh, communication in public health emergencies, health journalism, eHealth, mHealth, health publicity and health promotion campaigns will be presented by experts in these subjects. This unique congress is trying to focus on health communication at present through this variety of subjects, taking advantage of emerged synergies and presenting research being developed in the international field.

Just like previous editions, accepted abstracts at 3ICHC will be published in Spanish Journal of Health Communication (RECS), indexed scientific journal. Moreover, authors will be able to publish their abstracts as a full-text journal article, after passing the peer review process established by RECS.

After the success of the last edition (470 participants from 12 different nationalities, 152 abstracts, 12 presentations and 6 workshops), 3ICHC has the support of those organizations involved in academic, professional and research activities in the field of health communication. That´s why the congress counts on the active cooperation and participation of these organizations. A remarkable event like this wouldn´t be possible without your support.
