CALL FOR PAPERS: Other Borders International Women’s Health Conference
Deadline: November 30, 2007
Derry Well Woman, on behalf of the Cross Border Women’s Health Network, is hosting an international conference on women’s health in May 2008. The conference is entitled Other Borders. The aim is to make a health impact by raising awareness and opening up the debate on the need to improve health status and reduce health inequalities through focusing on:

  1. Women and exclusion
  2. Maintaining women’s roles in determining health and well-being when societies move from conflict to post conflict
  3. Meeting health needs on a cross border basis

Date: May 29th to 30th 2008 Place: Everglades Hotel, DerryNorthern Ireland

Format: keynotes, paper sessions at Workshops on each theme, panels, discussions, and informal interaction.

Across all themes we would encourage the active involvement of stakeholders through presenting and co-presenting papers or taking part in workshops and panel discussions.

We are particularly interested in evidence based models of good practice or interventions which address these issues and preference will be given to papers reflecting effective interventions/solution on topics.
