International Epidemiologic Association (IEA)
The deadline for applications is: February 1, 2009
Information about the course and the application form are available at: http://www.dundee.ac.uk/iea/SEAsia.htm
The aims of the IEA are “to facilitate communication among those engaged in research and teaching in epidemiology throughout the world, and to engage in the development and use of epidemiological methods in all fields of health including social, community and preventive medicine and health services administration.”
To advance these objectives, the IEA publishes the bi-monthly International Journal of Epidemiology and every three year organizes a World Congress of Epidemiology, with regional conferences held in the interim.
In particular, one of the IEA’s current emphases is to build epidemiological capacity in the global South, as well as to increase equitable global South/global North research collaborations. An important focus of many IEA members is on health inequities, within and between countries and regions, with the aim of producing knowledge and evidence that can be used to reduce these inequities and improve population health.
