Here is a summary of Global PaedSurg conference presentations thus far.

We encourage collaborators to present the study locally, nationally and internationally. Initially the study concept can be presented to help raise awareness and to invite collaborators to participate in the study. Once the study is complete collaborators can present the results. Funding is not available through the study, but international conference organisations often provide scholarships for junior presenters and/or presenters from low- and middle-income countries. A reference can be provided in support of funding applications.

Please inform the principal investigator, Naomi Wright, on if you wish to submit an abstract to present the study nationally or internationally. This is important to avoid duplicate submissions and to ensure all conference regulations are complied with.

A pre-prepared abstract, poster and PowerPoint presentation are available upon request.
