Second Syria Health Research Conference
This one-day conference will bring together experts from academia, front-line health actors and NGOs to showcase original research on current health issues in Syria, spanning from health system governance to epidemiology to many other disciplines within global health. This event will sit at the interface of academia and practice and touch upon theoretical and practical dilemmas when conducting health research in the Syrian conflict. Co-hosted by several research groups heavily involved in Syria health research along with an international Syrian health NGO that continues to be involved in all aspects of the health response in Syria, the aim of this event is to bring academics and practitioners together to discuss the challenges and the opportunities of conducting health research in the Syrian conflict and in conflict settings more widely.
