The Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR) of the University of Ghana is organizing a 2-Day Annual Research Meeting (ARM) on November 17-18, 2022. The theme of the research meeting is “Epidemics, Pandemics and Diseases of Public Health Importance: Bridging the Research and Policy Divide
The world has experienced many challenges during epidemics and pandemics, and the control of endemic infectious and non-communicable diseases of public health importance in recent years. Ghana has not been exempted. Among these challenges is the disconnect between research and policies. The NMIMR, as part of its mandate, has been at the forefront of fighting infectious pathogens through research and diagnosis. The purpose of this year’s ARM is for researchers to present cutting-edge research and have intellectual exchanges on the health policy implications of research findings. The ARM will provide a forum for researchers, health policymakers and practitioners, including governmental and non-governmental organizations, and community health partners to address the research and policy divide. The forum will also offer the opportunity for NMIMR to receive feedback from stakeholders to improve the focus and outputs of its research activities.
The Organizing Committee invites you to submit an abstract/abstracts of your research papers, present your work, and actively participate in this 2-day meeting. We welcome submissions addressing a broad range of health science topics in the areas of communicable and non-communicable diseases. We encourage submissions on both basic and applied sciences, health systems and implementation research as well as interventional studies.
