To tackle disease we need evidence to be generated through every type of health research study. This conference aims to bring together health research teams, organisations, health-workers, policy makers and practitioners to explore together how health research can be embedded into every healthcare setting.

The Global Health Network is also celebrating 10 years of mobilising research skills, know-how and methods to foster capable teams that generate new treatment strategies and prevention mechanisms that reduce the burden of disease within communities.

This is an opportunity to discover and share excellence in health research across disease areas, geographies and types of research and generate outputs that can be taken up and used by others.

Provisional Scientific Program

  1. Enabling research in every healthcare setting to tackle local priorities and embed lasting research capabilities.
  2. Pandemic preparedness through capacity development, knowledge sharing and stronger networks
  3. Generating evidence from existing data and applying data science through data sharing and novel analytical approaches.
  4. Engaging the community and building public trust in health research.
  5. Developing research leadership, fostering team science and delivering evidence through equitable partnerships and networks.
  6. Improving research processes and outputs by using digital technology, applying novel research methods and knowledge mobilisation.
  7. Taking research findings into policy and practice through implementation, discoverability and connecting health research with public health.

Symposia

We invite our partners to hold focus symposia within their area of interest. For example, we are planning symposia on AMR, a focus session for nurses working in research, and another on biorepositories. We aim for these focus areas to encourage and facilitate sharing of know-how in the specific topic between disease areas, teams, across geographies and organisations. Please get in touch to explore this opportunity, email info@theglobalhealthnetwork.org

We will be supporting maximum attendance for junior researchers and colleagues from low resource settings and aim for every paying delegate to be matched with a funded place. 

HOLD THE DATE AND REGISTER YOUR INTEREST. We expect this meeting will be very popular and so please register your interest ASAP. Registration will open soon and offered first to those who have registered their interest.
