The Global Health Network Conference 2022 Scholarship Award

Scholarship Award

An embedded theme of this conference is exploring equity in where research happens, who leads and who benefits. The aim is to learn from each other and share excellence in approaches, processes and methods. This also includes ensuring there is equitable access, representation and participation at this conference.

The Global Health Network Conference 2022 Scholarship Award will support attendance for junior researchers and colleagues from low resource settings.

This conference is being organised on a not for profit basis. Every delegate who can pay to attend will be supporting a delegate who would otherwise not be able to attend. Our partners will also be supporting delegate attendance.
