CHPAMS Announcements

  1. Greetings for the 10th Birthday of CHPAMS (From Dr. Sten Vermund)

“The 2018 conference is being held here. The Yale-China Association is 120 years old. Yale has had a working relationship in China that’s quite sustained and quite substantial. So we think it’s quite appropriate that you will choose our university as the American venue for this conference. We welcome all delegates from United States, from China and from the rest of the world to jointhis valuable conference with over 140 talks in the next two days. Welcome to New Haven!”


Dr. Sten Vermund is a pediatrician and infectious disease epidemiologist focused on diseases of low and middle income countries. His work on HIV-HPV interactions among women in Bronx methadone programs motivated a change in the 1993 CDC AIDS case surveillance definition and inspired cervical cancer screening programs launched within HIV/AIDS programs around the world. The thrust of his research has focused on health care access, adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights, and prevention of  HIV transmission among general and key populations, including mother-to-child.
