WONCA Rural Bangladesh 2020 extends deadlines

John Wynn-Jones, Immediate Past Chair of the WONCA Working Party on Rural Practice encourages support for the coming WONCA World Rural Health conference in Bangladesh, from April 15-18, 2020.

Time is marching on and we need your help. The Bangladesh conference is only four months away and we want it to be a resounding success. Our conferences attract delegates from around the world but I have always been saddened by the fact that the people who really need to attend and network at conferences are those who cannot afford to do so. The obvious solution was to take the conference to them, rather than expect them to come to the conferences.

So we need your support for the Bangladesh conference and I am asking you for your help to make this conference relevant and impactful. Deadlines for abstract submission and early bird registration are still open until 31 January.

We need your ideas, suggestions and effort to run relevant rural workshops. We need to cover workforce issues but also inequalities, defining rurality, infectious & non-communicable diseases, new models of care or rural case studies/stories.

If you need help, please either contact me [email protected], or conference organiser Zakiur Rahman [email protected]

This is real rural healthcare and we need your help and support. See you there.
