The Virtual Pre-Conference Global Injury Prevention Showcase, supported by the World Health Organization, is offering a limited number of partial registration scholarships to support participants of Lower Middle-Income Countries (LMIC) and First Nations People to attend the Virtual Pre-Conference Global Injury Prevention Showcase 2021.
The Global Injury Prevention Showcase
The World Conference on Injury on Prevention and Safety Promotion seek to promote prevention and safety when it comes to public health. The conference involves many disciplines and interest groups who are active in their respective fields.
Organized by the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA), the conference will facilitate international information sharing and cooperation to further the development of the science of injury prevention and safety promotion.
The conference will also provide evidence on good practices by national progress, create an environment of knowledge sharing, encourage research and heal promotion practitioners to develop a career in injury prevention, develop a knowledge base of injury prevention practice, and more.
The 14th World Conference on Injury on Prevention and Safety Promotion was set to happen next year in Adelaide, Australia but was postponed because of concerns around the global pandemic. The conference is now set to happen on 27 – 30 November 2022 in Adelaide, Australia.
To maintain the momentum, a Virtual Pre-Conference Global Injury Prevention Showcase was launched and will be held next year from 22 – 26 March 2021.
The pre-conference will ensure that there is an opportunity between the on-site events to engage, network, and continue knowledge sharing for the global safety community.
To get more people involved in safety and prevention, PHAA is offering partial registration scholarships for presenting applicants or for those who may have difficulty attending. Those who would be accepted will be offered a discount registration rate of $55 AUD.
To be eligible for the scholarship, the applicant must be either from a low or middle-income country or identifies as a First Nations People, must be taking part in the virtual pre-conference showcase either by an oral or poster presentation, and must be in the following priority groups; practitioner, researcher, policy, or advocate.
The application for the scholarship will close at 11:59 PM AEST, Sunday 17 January 2021.
