IFGH International Conference 2014 Abstracts, Presentations and Recordings.

November 18, 2014

IFGH Conference2014 Flyer_FRONTOn the 5th and 6th of November the IFGH held the 2014 IFGH International Conference in partnership with Concern around the theme of ‘Partnerships for Health’. The conference was well attended and provoked some interesting thoughts regarding the value of partnerships as well as how to recognise a partnership that is not performing effectively. For those who were unable to attend and for anyone who has an interest in this area the Abstracts Book, which compiles all the abstracts presented at the conference, can be found through this link. As well as the Abstracts Book, many of the sessions at the conference were recorded. Below are the links to the recordings for each session at the conference. The recordings are of the audio and the presentation in tandem as well as any Q and A. The accompanying presentations can also be found here without the audio.
