Programme overview

“……..The Symposium will commence on the evening of 31 October 2012 with an evening plenary session followed by a welcome reception. An official opening ceremony will take place on the morning of 1 November. Each day of the Symposium will be organized around one of the Symposium's three main themes:
(i)   Knowledge translation;
(ii)  state of the art research on HS, specifically its neglected topics; and
(iii) HSR methodologies.

The cross-cutting themes will be
a) Innovations in HS service delivery, research and governance; and
b) Stewardship, financing and capacity building on HSR.

Each day will open with a plenary session on a theme, and will be followed by a series of concurrent sessions -- both on topics related to the main theme and also on the cross cutting themes.

Knowledge Translation -- 1 November 2012

The focus for the day will be on the translation of HSR into policy and practice. In particular we encourage debates and joint presentations by researcher, policy-makers and programme implementers….”
