Our conference team put together a truly spectacular programme of international speakers and engaging workshops on our theme 'Survive, Thrive and Transform'.
The morning focused on the unfinished neonatal survival agenda in low resource settings, with key talks from experts including Dr Queen Dube who spoke to us about technical innovations in neonatal care, Professor Stephen Allen on neonatal nutrition and Professor Joy Lawn. The morning concluded with an interactive panel discussion on neonatal care resource constrained settings.
Over lunch participants had the opportunity to listen to rapid fire poster presentations selected from submitted abstracts.
The afternoon focused on child and adolescent thrival and included lectures on early child development, childhood disability and adolescent mental health from experts in the field.
Following this, three interactive workshops were offered focusing on how participants can get involved in advancing this new agenda in child health. For those who were interested in working abroad for the first time there was a workshop from the RCPCH Global Links team whilst for those with previous global health experience interested in scaling up their work there was a session from the BMA International Team about applying for project grants. The third workshop was delivered by Save the Children and focused on advocacy for child health.
A HUGE thank you to those who attended!
