We shall announce further details of the Conference Series in mid-May. Each session will last 90 minutes, starting with a 1 hour international expert panel discussion, followed by short presentations based on peer-reviewed abstracts on the Conference themes.

Abstracts and proceedings will be published in the Health Policy & Technology journal.

This has serious implications for control of communicable and non-communicable disease, both in developed and in less developed countries. Find out more in our HPT Editorial
