Description:

Frontiers of Longitudinal Research in Malawi: Informing Health and Family Policies after the Peak of the AIDS EpidemicConference

March 11-12, 2016 at the College of Medicine, University of Malawi, Blantyre, Malawi.

Organized in collaboration of Invest in Knowledge (IKI), College of Medicine University of Malawi, University of Pennsylvania, University of Essex, with funding by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

After the peak of the AIDS epidemic, Malawi, similar to other countries in the region, is undergoing a profound shift in health, demographic, social and economic patterns. As a consequence, policy makers and researchers need to develop new priorities and strategies to address upcoming new health and social challenges. The conference encourages submissions that highlight the importance of longitudinal data to understand the determinants of past and future health and family patterns in Malawi, and submissions that are of potential importance for policy-makers to develop new policy agendas to address the shifting health and demographic patterns (including for instance research on surviving the epidemic, aging, migration, non-communicable diseases including disabilities and mental health, ART and its consequences, intergenerational transfers, and other topics that are defining the research frontier after the peak of the AIDS epidemic).

Please email abstracts and any inquiries to conference@investinknowledge.org

Call for Papers Submission Deadline: February 8, 2016
Presenters will be notified for the acceptance of their submissions by February 12, 2016.
Organizing Committee: James Mkandawire (IKI), Victor Mwapasa (COM), Chiwoza Bandawe (COM), Hans-Peter Kohler (University of Pennsylvania) and Adeline Delavande (University of Essex)
