The fifth annual Student Projects for Health forum took place at the 2019 conference of the Network: TUFH, which was held September 10-13, 2019, in Darwin, Australia. The theme of the conference was Social Accountability: From Evidence to Action. Winners were invited to attend the conference and present posters about their projects.

An open worldwide call resulted in 72 submissions from which 12 projects were selected by an international panel of 18 reviewers. Submissions were judged on the quality of the project, degree and nature of the applicant’s participation, the applicant’s contribution to project innovation, the impact of the project, and diffusion and integration of the project.
