2014 Symposium on Evidence in Global Disability and Health
International Symposium in India
Evidence in Global Disability and Health
The International Centre for Evidence in Disability took great delight in co-hosting the International Symposium on “Evidence in Global Disability and Health” together with the Public Health Foundation of India. This Symposium was held at the University of Hyderabad in India on February 22 and 23. We were joined by 125 delegates from all around the world, including alumni of LSHTM from India and beyond. We enjoyed a diverse selection of invited talks and oral presentations from disability activists, researchers, and programme implementers. These talks stimulated lively discussion and debate, both in the conference hall as well as over the curry lunch. There were also more than 50 posters of research displayed, and each afternoon the delegates joined in workshops to explore particular topics in more detail. The Symposium helped to forge new relationships and strengthen links, and we look forward to hosting the third Symposium in this series, provisionally in 2016.
