I have several updates to provide on the Global Forum on Human Resources for
Health in Kampala, Uganda, March 2-7, 2008.
First, there has been a change in the deadline for abstracts. They are now due
January 15, 2008 (instead of December 31). Earlier submission is encouraged,
however. The registration deadline remains January 31 (though early
registration is also encouraged).
Second, on receiving financial support from GHWA - submitting abstracts (and
having them accepted) will still help in getting funding, though I no longer
know whether having an abstract accepted is a guarantee of funding. I will let
you know when I have anything more definitive.
Third, along with emailing me if you would like to participate but will require
financial support to do so, as I suggested previously, you might well want to
advise the GHWA Secretariat (email@example.com) so that they have this
information directly from you and are aware of a number of people who are very
interested in participating in the Forum but may require financial support.
This would probably be a good idea even if you have already emailed me.
More on the Forum is available at http://www.ghwa.org/. Please check the
website regularly for updates in case there are any further changes.
