Track 1: Leaving no-one behind - approaches to addressing health inequities

The resounding call of the Sustainable Development Goals is that we "leave no-one behind" in the quest for health systems that provide continuous, comprehensive and co-ordinated care. This track seeks to unpack the implications of this call and to explore mechanisms to achieve this. Preference will be given to papers that demonstrate high quality evidence of impact and documented good practices in addressing these issues.

Specific themes under this track include:

  • Universal health coverage 
  • Communicable and non-communicable diseases and programmatic targets
  • Access to healthcare services
  • Inequities in healthcare service provision
  • Needs of vulnerable and marginalised communities

Specific themes under this track include:

  • Leadership and governance
  • Health workforce planning
  • Mentorship and coaching
  • Monitoring and accountability mechanisms

Track 3: Building Partnerships - working together to promote good practice and knowledge sharing

To realise the Sustainable Development Goals, collective action to co-create, share and broker new and existing knowledge, and implement insights from working with various sectors and diverse stakeholders is required. This track seeks to explore successful examples of how developing interconnectedness through innovation and collaboration amongst a variety of actors within and outside of the health sector can influence positive health outcomes.

Specific themes under this track include:

  • Intersectoral / interdisciplinary collaboration highlighting knowledge sharing and co-creation
