Establishing Principles of Stakeholder Engagement in Global Health Implementation Science and Research (066-18)
June 13, 2018
Georgetown University Law Center, 600 New Jersey Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001, USA
This convening of global health experts is a joint effort between Georgetown University and the USAID funded, Health Evaluation and Applied Research Development (HEARD) Partnership. The purpose is to address the issue that while meaningful stakeholder engagement is widely understood to be a necessary component of successful global health governance, because of asymmetric power, funders and researchers often are the ones setting research priorities compared with local policy makers, implementers, advocates and other stakeholders. The result is that the questions and issues that are most pressing to implementers, policy-makers, or the clients they serve are not always asked or studied, resulting in inefficiency, waste, and policies or programs which do not effectively address the needs of the target populations.
Panel discussions will guide a process to create agreed upon principles of stakeholder engagement which will improve implementation science processes.

First Malaria World Congress (070-18)

Oral submission deadline: midnight aest Wednesday 4 April 2018
Poster submission deadline: midnight aest friday 22 june 2018
REGULAR registration: 05 JUL 18
Malaria is without doubt one of the world’s leading health problems causing death and severe illness to millions each year at a scale that entrenches poverty and disadvantage in major swathes of the world. Despite impressive advances over the last decade, malaria remains a huge global and regional threat. The recently released World Health Organisation 2017 World Malaria Report is a salutary reminder that we are indeed at a tipping point which could go either way.
At present, there is no mechanism anywhere in the world for ALL stakeholders - those in affected communities, in government, in policy development, in implementation, in program finance, and in research - to gather and share information, to reach a consensus and to build a solid framework for collaborative action against malaria.
The inaugural Malaria World Congress aims to address this gap.
Our objectives are
Facilitation of collaboration between practitioners of scientific innovation, health systems delivery, community, government and non-governmental organisations
Position malaria elimination within the Universal Health Coverage and Sustainable Development Goals
Strengthen political commitment and action towards malaria elimination
Address gaps in knowledge and communication within and across sectors to meet elimination targets
Malaria elimination is a priority issue in 2018. Following on from the malaria event to be held in conjunction with the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting (CHOGM) in London in April, 2018, this Congress will be a critical step in keeping up and building upon the political momentum created at the April event. The Malaria World Congress will be the opportunity to work through implementation issues not possible in a one day meeting putting a strong focus on cross-sector collaboration.
The Congress is structured around three key themes:
Malaria Today - The recent history and present of malaria control and elimination efforts.
Putting Malaria Elimination into a Global Health Context - How malaria sits within the broader global health context, with focus on the Sustainable Development Goals, Universal Health Care and health security.
Meeting the Challenges of Malaria Eradication - How we move forward together to enable sustainable impact in malaria endemic countries.
Within each of these themes there are four pillars:
Science - Including application- and social- focused research
Global, regional and country governance - Leadership driving goals
Frontline - Implementation and innovation
Putting People at the Centre
The conference will to provide the opportunity for both presentations and in-depth discussion and will culminate in a key joint declarations.
