Dear colleague

Are you submitting an abstract for an oral or poster presentation at the WONCA World conference in Abu Dhabi?

If so, you may be eligible to apply for consideration of an award for the best oral or poster presentation by an emerging researcher from a low or middle income country (LMIC). Awards of $5000 (USD) for the best oral presentation, and $2000 (USD) for the best poster presentation, are being generously provided by Dr Sadok Besrour from the Besrour Centre for Global Family Medicine at the College of Family Physicians of Canada.

If you:
· started your research career within the last five years
· are the first author
· are from a LMIC
· conducted your research predominantly or exclusively in a LMIC
then you can apply to be considered for this award.

Note: recipients of the Taiwan family Medicine Research award will not be eligible.

The winners will be presented with their awards at the closing ceremony.
