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. Launched in 2015, 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.
The 2018 Network: TUFH conference, co-hosted by the University of Limerick, will be held August 16-20, 2018, in Limerick, Ireland. The theme of the conference is “Community Empowerment for Health: A Multi-Sector Approach.” Applications for the 2018 Student Projects for Health competition will open on October 27, 2017.
