November 9, 2017 10:00 - 11:30 UTC

This webinar took place on November 9, 2017. However, if you missed the webinar or want to listen to it again, you can:

You are kindly invited to participate in the Health Systems Global Africa Region webinar on â€śhow to submit a successful organised session abstract”.

The purpose of this webinar will be to offer tips on how participants can increase their chances of having their abstracts successfully accepted for an organised session at the Fifth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research in Liverpool, October 2018 (HSR2018).

The webinar will give an overview of the importance of raising the profile of African health policy and systems research at HSR2018, and how organised sessions can be a powerful way of achieving this. Perspectives from the Programme Working Group on the symposium theme and what the Scientific Committee will be looking for in strong abstracts will be shared, as will the experiences of those who have successfully had their organised session abstracts accepted at previous global symposia.

The agenda will include a brief overview, a series of short presentations, and a facilitated Q+A session for participants.

We do hope you will join us!
