Geneva Health Forum 2012 – Submissions close 30th October 2011

The fourth edition of the Geneva Health Forum (GHF – http://www.ghf12.org) will take place on Wednesday, 18 April 2012 – Friday, 20 April 2012 at the Centre International de Conférences de Genève (CICG), Rue de Varembé 15, Geneva, Switzerland.

The event will focus on chronic conditions which pose major challenges to health systems in high and low-income countries, in stable and emergency situations. To address this challenge the GHF solicits accounts from those on the frontlines, whether they are working at the local level in a rural clinic, at the national level in a ministry or developing policy at the international level.

Building on networks and partners, the GHF is becoming a permanent forum through the globalaccesstohealth.net platform, a collaborative space that allows year round interactions, prior and after the meeting in Geneva. This platform encourages exchange of knowledge and practical experiences and facilitates access to debates thus widening the participation of those isolated in the field. Putting in touch people with various resources and skills, it helps in generating new initiatives and actions, which can be monitored in real time.

Geneva Health Forum welcomes submission of research abstracts or sharing project experiences with an international audience. You can submit your research abstract or project experience on-line.  Submissions close on 30th October 2011 – see http://www.ghf12.org/?page_id=425

The Geneva Health Forum 2012 will provide a limited number of travel grants to participants from low income and lower-middle income countries. The countries list is based on the World Bank list. Requests for travel grants can be made available only by participants whose submission has already been accepted. Requests can only be submitted via the On-Line Application System, which will be available to eligible authors once the abstract selection process has been completed – http://www.ghf12.org/?page_id=429
