Symposium:

PGPR's fifth symposium was held May 8, 2007 in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Pediatric Academic Societies. This three-part symposium focussed on global childhood diseases which can impair development. Parts 1 and 3 were comprised of expert presentations providing an overview of the problems and issues and instances of work that is being done. Part 2 featured platform presentations from selected abstracts on related issues.

Symposium topics included:


Workshop:

At the follow-up workshop on May 9 colleagues from high-, mid- and low-income countries met in order to examine the critical issues and establish clear plans for collaborative study on outcomes.

Proceedings:

We are now working to make the proceedings from the symposium and workshop available via publication and on this website.
