Update: The UK Secretary of State for International Develoment, Ms Priti Patel was due to address the conference, but resigned from her ministerial role on Wednesday 8 November. We hope that the Department for International Development will be able to provide a replacement speaker.

Innovation in global health includes process innovation, novel research methods, innovative interventions designed for low resource settings, and the use of technology to support diagnostics and treatment.

The Global Health Day conference will begin with three sessions in which researchers at the coalface of global health will present innovative research and interventions.

The fourth and final session of the day will be a panel discussion entitled “How the UK supports innovation in global health”.

There will also be a poster competition for early career researchers in the afternoon and a networking reception at the end of the day.


POSTER COMPETITION FOR EARLY CAREER RESEARCHERS

Global Health Day is also holding a poster competition open to UK PhD students and early career researchers with an interest in global health.

Some great prizes are on offer (as well as the glory of having your work seen by Global Health Day attendees).
