Following Forum 10 in Cairo, the Global Forum for Health Research will be holding it’s next annual meeting, Forum 11, in Beijing from 29 October – 2 November 2007. They have announced a call for abstracts with a deadline of 31 January 2007. From the website:

The Global Forum for Health Research invites you to submit an abstract for Forum 11 in any area of health research relevant to the overarching theme of Equitable Access: Research challenges for health in developing countries.  Papers addressing these areas from a national, sub-national or regional perspective are particularly invited. The Global Forum welcomes submissions from all parts of the world and encourages participation from lower income countries.  Submissions of abstracts from students are especially encouraged and the best papers will be specially featured in Forum 11.

The five thematic strands are: access to health, innovation, research resources, decision-making, and communication. The website suggests a particular emphasis on gender equity.
