Regulation in a disrupted world: Challenges and Opportunities

15th International Conference On Medical Regulation






On behalf of the International Association of Medical Regulatory Authorities ( IAMRA), it is my honour and privilege to invite you to Bali, Indonesia, for IAMRA’s 15th International Conference on Medical Regulation, taking place November 6-9, 2023. We are looking forward to an in-person meeting to share ideas, learn from colleagues, catch up with friends and make connections. The theme of the Conference is Regulation in a disrupted world: challenges and opportunities.

We welcome IAMRA members and partners, medical and health regulators, policy makers and academics to come together to share their experiences in a disrupted world. Attendees are invited to share their lessons learned, as well as opportunities to address challenges we face now, such a COVID-19 pandemic challenges, misinformation and disinformation, workforce shortages, and the like. Sub-themes for the Conference include disruption in regulation, best practices in medical regulation, developments in education, assessment and accreditation, and designing sustainable and relevant regulation. The Conference will include plenty of opportunities for networking, and the social program will highlight the welcoming province of Bali with its magical blend of culture, people, and nature.

Please join us for this exciting Conference. I look forward to a hearing your ideas as we support the world’s medical regulators to respond to both current and future regulatory challenges and opportunities.

Dr. Heidi Oetter
International Association of Medical Regulatory Authorities



At the end of 2023, November 6th to 9th to be precise, IAMRA is holding the 15th International Conference on Medical Regulation.

I received a mandate by being appointed as the chief executive of the activity to form a national committee under the supervision of IAMRA. We invite IAMRA members and prospective members to attend the 15th IAMRA International Conference in Bali.

Bali or the Island of Gods is one of more than 17,000 magnificent islands spread across Indonesia. In a country with a majority Muslim population, Bali still adheres to its strong traditional roots and most of them embrace Hinduism. In Bali you will experience an extraordinary cultural experience with its beautiful natural scenery, whether on the beach, mountains, rice fields, traditional villages or thousands of temples where local people worship.

In addition, Bali is also an area for organizing international activities, with a proud reputation. Hence, we represent the Indonesian Medical Council, as the host, and will do our best to organize the 15th IAMRA International Conference activities so that attendees feel comfortable and have a wonderful conference experience.

Apart from the community, the Government of Indonesia is also very supportive of this activity, making it easier for the committee to carry out coordination at all levels.

In the pandemic era and afterward, health regulation will be more relevant and more needed in order to achieve cooperation between medical regulatory stakeholders.

Enjoy the conference, the general assembly and your time while in Bali, a gorgeous place you should visit at least once in your lifetime.

Prof. dr. Taruna Ikrar, M.D., M. Biomed, Ph.D.
Chairman of the 15th IAMRA International Conference
