Next Generation: Shaping the future of health research for women, children & young people

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 - 17:30 to 18:45

John Snow Lecture Theatre London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine Keppel Street London WC1E 7HT

There are around 10 million preventable deaths each year for newborns, children, adolescents and women. Each death is a personal tragedy and a missed opportunity. This event will explore next generation research priorities that will have a significant impact on shaping the health of women, children and adolescents worldwide in the SDG era, based on a review of a decade of LSHTM research.

This event, hosted by the MARCH Centre at LSHTM, marks the launch of the MARCH report 2018- 22 (aligned with the School strategy) and will ask:

If we want to impact the health of women, children and young people in 5-10 years, what shifts in research and education do we need to make now, given the time lag from research idea to policy and practice?

Introductory talks from Professor Peter Piot and Professor Joy Lawn followed by a panel discussion including high level experts from outside the School chaired by Dr Jocalyn Clark, Executive Editor at The Lancet.
