Global Remote and Rural Healthcare –July 2021 Webinar
Last November Bridge2Aid hosted a 2 day conference on ‘Remote and rural healthcare – how can we do it better?’. In advance of the next conference in November 2021 we are running a series of short webinars to continue the exploration of this important topic

This webinar will feature three international speakers, covering the topics of Supporting the development of sustainable eye care in poor rural communities; Access and Accessibility to healthcare in Rwanda and the importance of menstrual health education in rural settings.

In addition to our three international speakers we are now delighted to welcome Gillian Mitchell of the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh, Faculty of Remote, Rural and Humanitarian healthcare, who will give a short talk about the faculty in general, the capabilities framework, and fellowship funding opportunities, for which applications are currently being sought from qualifying organisations.

We strongly believe that there is much to be learned from the experience of others in delivering and researching any aspect of delivering healthcare in remote and rural areas and we hope you will join us for this event.

This webinar is free to view. A £20 fee will be applied for ProDental CPD PAYG members who wish to claim a CPD certificate. CPD and access to the recorded webinar is FREE to subscribers.

Remember if you subscribe you get access to everything for a one off annual fee - from £36!
