GLOBVAC- Global health and vaccination research programme – has recently funded seven new project spanning topics of HIV/AIDS prevention, influenza vaccines for pregnant women, school dengue prevention, malaria prevention, childhood alcohol abuse and informed health choices among youth.
 
How can these projects contribute to Norwegian policy on global health, and how can research results be taken up in future policy work done by Norad, local governments, NGO's and other relevant stakeholders?
 
The Research Council of Norway and Norad invite you to this short seminar bringing policy makers and researchers together as a means to bridge the gap between policy and research.
 
The researchers will inform about the expected results of their projects, and both the presenters and participants of the seminar are challenged to reflect upon how the projects can be relevant to Norwegian policy on global health, the Sustainable Development Goals and how the results can be utilized in policy.
 
The seminar will be held in English and is open to all interested.
 
A light lunch will be served.
