THE 11th NATIONAL HEALTH RESEARCH FORUM
(Including the adolescent research day)
23rd – 25th October 2017
Vientiane capital, Lao PDR
“Health Research Capacity Strengthening toward Sustainable Development”The forum aims to provide a platform for researchers, policy makers, health practitioners and other experts to discuss and exchange ideas, experiences, and research findings through presentations and poster exhibitions. Moreover, to ensure that the health research in Lao PDR is aligned with national priorities within the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), in particular SDG3 – health and wellbeing, and SDG5 – gender equality. The research forum will include areas such as health equity and universal health coverage (UHC), nutrition, and health service provision.
The pre-conference on adolescent health aims to emphasize the importance of quality research on adolescent-specific issues as well as disaggregated data on adolescents, acknowledging the specific needs of adolescents and the current lack of evidence in the region and globally. The pre-conference will also invite decision-makers and relevant stakeholders to ensure efficient communication of evidence, or the lack thereof, to decision-makers directly and to facilitate discussions between researchers and decision-makers. In SDG5 there are specific indicators pertaining to early marriage and early pregnancy, the complexity of which calls for multi-sectoral interventions and collaborations. Moreover, in SDG3 there are specific indicators pertaining to nutrition, primarily focusing on maternal or infant nutrition. However, current research often ignore that mothers are often adolescents in this context and often with sub-optimal nutritional status, additionally children born to adolescents are at higher risk of adverse nutritional outcomes early in life. Hence, to break the viscous cycle of malnutrition, adolescence is crucial and evidence imperative.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTSThe Forum will cover keynote addresses from distinguished experts within the field of public health and various health fields and specific expertise within adolescent health for the pre-conference. In line with the Forum theme, we will facilitate interactive policy dialogues; one focusing on adolescent health and one on Oral and poster presentations will be planned under the topics working toward SDG 3 “Ensuring healthy lives & promote well-being for all at all ages” and SDG5 “Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls”.
