Programme

Our conference team have put together a truly spectacular programme of international speakers and engaging workshops on our theme 'Survive, Thrive and Transform'.

The morning will focus on the unfinished neonatal survival agenda in low resource settings, with key talks from experts including Dr Queen Dube who will be speaking to us about technical innovations in neonatal care, Professor Stephen Allen on neonatal nutrition and Professor Joy Lawn.  The morning will conclude with an interactive panel discussion on neonatal care resource constrained settings.  

Over lunch participants will have the opportunity to listen to rapid fire poster presentations selected from submitted abstracts.  

The afternoon will focus on child and adolescent thrival and includes lectures on early child development, childhood disability and adolescent mental health from experts in the field.  

Following this, we will offer a choice of three interactive workshops focusing on how participants can get involved in advancing this new agenda in child health.  For those who are interested in working abroad for the first time there will be a workshop from the RCPCH Global Links team whilst for those with previous global health experience interested in scaling up their work there will be a session from the BMA International Team about applying for project grants.  The third workshop will be delivered by Save the Children and will focus on advocacy for child health.
