Emerging Health Policy Research Conference

July 26, 2018

Call for Abstracts Now Open

The Menzies Centre for Health Policy invites abstracts for its annual Emerging Health Policy Research Conference, to be held at the University of Sydney on Thursday, 26 July 2018.

The Emerging Health Policy Research Conference showcases emerging health policy research of academic researchers, health policy professionals and higher degree research students. We invite submissions for oral presentations from all areas of health policy -including international health, health systems, history of public health, indigenous health, health economics, health promotion and sociology. An abstract can include research that has been completed, or that has been planned, but not conducted or finalised.

Participation in the Emerging Health Policy Research Conference provides an opportunity to:

  • discuss health policy responses to current local, national and global health challenges;
  • present in progress health policy research to a wide audience of students, academics and practitioners; and
  • discuss new ideas and identify opportunities for collaboration across disciplinary boundaries.
