The Geneva Health Forum 2014- Global Health: Interconnected Challenges, Integrated Solutions – Call for abstracts: Your inputs Count!

The 5th edition of the Geneva Health Forum 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, in Geneva, approximately one thousand people from more than one hundred countries, from various sectors and professional backgrounds to debate and share around the most pressing contemporary global health issues, giving a prominent voice to those at the frontlines of health.
Next year forum will revolve around the theme of “integration”, more here: http://bit.ly/19h37tx
13 thematic tracks taking stock of the various topics covered since 2006 will guide the submission process and allow our diverse audience to contribute to shaping the programme.
Questions have been added to each track description to provide hints on the various dimensions of integration: http://bit.ly/19h4ZCB
At the GHF we deliberately create mechanisms that allow practitioners/frontliners to participate and contribute to global health discussions. We have created an abstract submission path 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 for uploading of short audio visuals which sometimes are much more powerful than a long presentation. You will find all details on submissions on:
http://ghf.globalhealthforum.net/submission/
Please note that a selected number of travel grants are offered to submitters from LICs (World Bank list: http://bit.ly/19h64u7) whose abstract will be accepted for an oral presentation. I would therefore urge you to diffuse the information also to your partners in eligible countries.
Deadline for submission: September 30th 2013

Since 2006 GHF has asked hard questions, invited practical solutions, and heard many brave voices from all over the world. As the world gets more complex and health more vital, we would be delighted to partner with you in the delivery of GHF 2014 where we will go even further.
