CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

DEADLINE: 19 JANUARY 2018

 

The Zambia Ministry of Health is convening the first national Evidence for Impact symposium focusing on reproductive, maternal and newborn, child, and adolescent health and nutrition services (RMNCAH-N) in primary care and community settings 20-22 March 2018. Evidence presented at the symposium is intended to be used by policymakers and stakeholders to contribute to national social-economic development as per the Seventh National Development Plan (7NDP) and achievement of Zambia’s Sustainable Development Goals. This is the time to focus on critical evidence generated in Zambia, to share learning, and maximize gains at primary and community levels to accelerate progress.

Researchers are encouraged to submit abstracts, pre-formed panels, satellite sessions, and exhibition booths to present evidence for policy and improved health outcomes
