Next Generation: Shaping the future of health research for women, children & young people

There are around 10 million preventable deaths each year for newborns, children, adolescents and women. Each death is a personal tragedy and a missed opportunity. This event will explore next generation research priorities that will have a significant impact on shaping the health of women, children and adolescents worldwide in the SDG era, based on a review of a decade of LSHTM research.

This event, hosted by the MARCH Centre at LSHTM, marks the launch of the MARCH report 2018- 22 (aligned with the School strategy) and will ask:

If we want to impact the health of women, children and young people in 5-10 years, what shifts in research and education do we need to make now, given the time lag from research idea to policy and practice?
