PACIFIC HEALTH GOVERNANCE WORKSHOP: Knowledge Translation for SDG Implementation

The University of Queensland (UQ) is proud to announce the inaugural Pacific Health Governance Workshop.

Hosted by UQ’s School of Public Health, in collaboration with UQ International Development, Abt Associates, TNC Pacific Consulting and the Centre for Policy Futures, the workshop aims to facilitate a meeting of scholars and practitioners from Australia and the Pacific islands region who work on issues related to health, governance and development.

The workshop will explore the health and development of the region within the context of the unfolding UN Sustainable Development agenda. The event is designed to map research needs for the region in terms of four major themes, with the objective to facilitate the construction of research agendas for policy by means of co-creation activities. The workshop will be the first in a series of events designed to broker networks and partnerships for research and innovation for health in the region.

Keynote speakers, panellists and chairs will include leading scholars and practitioners in Pacific affairs and global health governance, with space for dialogue and an opportunity for researchers, funders and practitioners from the region to discuss research needs and collaboration opportunities.

Professionals: $100
