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.

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.


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