Selected abstracts will be presented as digital posters on site at the Women Deliver 2019 Conference in Vancouver, Canada.
SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT https://womendeliver.smapply.io/prog/request_for_poster_abstracts/
Interested parties may submit an abstract for (1) research or scholarly work, or (2) an evidence-based initiative for a chance to present their poster at the Solutions Gallery at the Women Deliver 2019 Conference.
Aligned with the conference theme of “Power, Progress, Change,” abstracts should focus on demonstrating the impact of advocacy for gender equality and the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women.
Specifically: Research abstracts should quantify the impact of advocacy by addressing data gaps, presenting new data, or building off of existing research from a different perspective. Evidence-based initiative abstracts should explain how the advocacy initiative or program demonstrates concrete results and/or solutions for girls and women.
