11th Health Services and Policy Research Conference Call for Symposiums now open!





Authors are invited to submit a group of related presentations (3-4 presenters) as a symposium proposal around a central theme. A symposium offers an opportunity for you and colleagues to present your work on a specific topic of interest. The 75 minutes (60 minutes presentation followed by 15 minutes for questions) allocated to these sessions allow a chance to present a substantial body of research findings, incorporating debate and discussion on key issues.


The call for symposiums  closes Friday April 5 2019. Please plan your timetable for preparation and submission carefully.


All abstracts submissions must be made via the website by completing the online submission form and attaching your abstract as per the layout guidelines.



As a commitment to attend and support the Conference, accepted presenters are expected to register and pay for a full or day registration. Potential presenters should note that all costs to attend the Conference must be met from their own resources.


If you have never considered a submission, we urge you to take this opportunity to be an active part of the Conference by sharing your experiences, expertise and visions for the future with fellow delegates. You will find it a most professionally rewarding and stimulating experience.
