Call for abstracts: The Geneva Health Forum 2014- Global Health: Interconnected Challenges, Integrated Solutions

Submission deadline: 30 September 2013

The 5th edition of the Geneva Health Forum (GHF) will take place in Geneva from 15-17April 2014. This international forum which aims to link policy and practice in the field of global health, gathers every two years, attracting more than a thousand people from over one hundred countries. Participants come from various sectors and professional backgrounds to debate and share the most pressing contemporary global health issues, giving a prominent voice to those at the frontlines of health.

The 2014 forum will revolve around the theme of "integration",

GHF deliberately creates mechanisms that allow practitioners/frontliners to participate and contribute to global health discussions. An abstract submission path has been created that caters to practitioners and is in a straightforward Q&A format. This complements the scientific submission path, which caters mainly to academia. It also allows the uploading of short audio visuals which sometimes are much more powerful than a long presentation.

Please note that a selected number of travel grants are offered to submitters from LICs whose abstract will be accepted for an oral presentation. You are therefore urged to also diffuse the information to your partners in eligible countries.
