Free event – An afternoon of global health with ResIn and RSTMH
Monday 18 September, 3:15pm – 4:45pm
University of Southampton, Highfield Campus
Preceded by a brief introduction from Professor David Wilson, Associate Dean for Internationalisation, this event will include two talks –
a) Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene Strategy Launch – RSTMH Chief Executive, Tamar Ghosh, will present the Society’s new strategy, including information about several new activities including mentoring, education and training. There will also be time to discuss the benefits of RSTMH membership which include journal access, a calendar of scientific and social events, plus a well-established grants round.
b) Presentation of the results of the Southampton-led Research Investments in Global Health Study (ResIn).
Funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and enthusiastically received by (among others) the World Health Organisation, Dr’s Michael Head and Rebecca Brown have analysed 16 years of data on global infectious disease funding. How much funding goes to HIV research compared to tuberculosis? Is pneumonia an under-funded and neglected area? What does the research landscape look like for malaria investments in sub-Saharan Africa? What can we learn from the historical financing of research for Ebola? What should the research landscape look like going forward, and how should we in the global health community be setting future priorities?
This event is open to colleagues both within the University of Southampton and externally. Everybody is welcome!
Location – Senate Room, 4th floor, building 37, Highfield campus of the University of Southampton.
