[EQ] World Conference on Social Determinants of Health - Proposals for Stakeholder Events

Proposals for Stakeholder Events
World Conference on Social Determinants of Health

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, October 2011

An event proposal should be sent by August 31, 2011


The Secretariat of the World Conference on Social Determinants of Health has received requests to hold stakeholder events related to the themes of the conference.  The secretariat will require written proposals to select the eligible events, given the limited space available.

An event proposal addressing the following points:

1.       The objective of the event with preliminary program and proposed speakers

2.       The target audience

3.       The number of people expected

4.       The proposed financing for the event

5.       The proposed date and time for the event

Selection of the proposals will be based on their relevance to the conference themes and availability of rooms with sufficient capacity at the conference venue on the date and time requested.  WHO will not be involved in the organization and promotion of these stakeholder–led events and cannot provide logistical support.

The meeting rooms will be located in the Rio Othon Palace Hotel and will be available from October 18-21, 2011.  This hotel is a 10 minute walk from the official conference venue.

Please note that these stakeholder events will not be part of the official conference program, however, the conference participants will be informed of all stakeholder events.  Furthers, individuals invited to a stakeholder event will not be able to attend the World Conference of Social Determinants of Health without a formal invitation to the conference.

Conclusions and recommendations from the stakeholder events will be accepted for consideration by the drafting committee of the World Conference on Social Determinants of Health.

An event proposal should be sent to by August 31, 2011.
