Student Projects for Health
The Student Projects for Health competition recognizes students who have made outstanding contributions to projects that successfully promote community health and well-being. Now in its third year, the competition is supported by GEMx and FAIMER as part of the annual conference of The Network: Towards Unity for Health (TUFH). It is open to all undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in any course of study who have been participating in such projects. Representatives of approximately 15 projects receive sponsorship to attend the conference each year. Sponsorship includes air travel, hotel accommodation, and conference registration fee.
Applications for the 2017 Student Projects for Health competition are now closed. A list of the 2017 winners will be posted soon. Winners will be sponsored to attend the 2017 annual conference of The Network: TUFH. The conference, which will feature the World Summit on Social Accountability, will be held April 8-12, 2017, in Hammamet, Tunisia. The theme of the conference is Improving the Impact of Educational Institutions on People’s Health. Winners will be invited to attend the conference and present posters about their projects.
