[e-drug] Medicine Quality & Public Health Conference Abstract Submission Finishes 18th June

E-DRUG: Medicine Quality & Public Health Conference Abstract Submission 
Finishes 18th June

Dear Colleagues,

Medicine Quality & Public Health Conference – Oxford : week of 23rd September 

A reminder to the medicine quality and access community that conference 
registration will close on 31st August. However, we offer an Early Bird 10 % 
discount until late June the end date will depend on when all early bird places 
have been used up  so please register early.

This is being organised by the Centre for Tropical Medicine & Global Health, 
University of Oxford. Please see the conference website, with an updated 
program, at 
where you will find more information.

Submission of posters and talks will close on 18th June !

There is increasing interest in the neglected subject of poor quality medicines 
and other medical products, their epidemiology, origins, detection and impact 
and how to intervene to reduce their frequency. However, there has never been, 
that we are aware of, a dedicated large academic and programmatic international 
conference on the subject. The aims are to:

 1.     To bring together people from a diversity of backgrounds interested in 
the subject [public health, national regulatory authority, pharmacy, 
biomedical, chemist, law, ethics, cultural sciences, social sciences, public 
health education & engagement, international organisations, NGOs, development 
partners/donors in health, national procurement centres, the internet-sector] 
to learn and discuss together. As the field is a young one and fragmented we 
expect that all will benefit from this networking and discussion and greater 
consensus reached.

2.     To discuss a wide range of relevant topics - including definitions, law, 
international guidelines, epidemiology, public health impact, ethics, patient 
and health worker knowledge, sociology of medicines  engagement, physical and 
chemical analysis, packaging, regulation and potential interventions.

The conference will start with two days of scientific and operational research 
orientated talks and discussion, followed by three days of more 
policy-orientated discussion.

The Medicine Quality & Public Health Course will be held in Oxford the week 
before. See:


Please cascade this message to all you think may be interested !

We hope that you will be able to attend.
