We are proud to announce that our Winter Meeting 2018 will be held on 19th November at Alderhey Children's Hospital Liverpool.

Our conference team have put together a truly spectacular programme of international speakers and engaging workshops on our theme 'Survive, Thrive and Transform'. We have chosen our theme in line with the 2016 – 2030 WHO Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health Strategy.

Substantial gains were achieved in child survival in the era of the Millennium Development Goals however much unfinished work remains, particularly in relation to reducing neonatal mortality. In this, the era of the Sustainable Development Goals there is a shift in our focus from survival alone to ensuring optimal child development and wellbeing. We hope to explore this with a day of expert speakers and engaging workshops, allowing for fascinating insights and stimulating discussions. 

We're aiming for a truly international ICHG meeting and will be running the event simultaneously between Blantyre, Malawi & Liverpool, UK via video-link. We hope to encourage exchange of ideas between professionals in this diverse settings for improvement in global child health.

Abstract submission is now open and closes on the 11th of September - please see below for details.  Submissions should be emailed to ichgwintermeeting2018@gmail.com.

Tickets will be available soon - please keep an eye on the website and newsletter for more info.
