Conference Support

As the conference is a non-subsidized event it depends heavily upon the goodwill of supporting organizations. Subsequently we ask you to consider our invitation to participate in this unique event. Your organization can make a very meaningful impact in addressing violence in the health sector by reconfirming or becoming an “supporting organization” of the conference. Such support is greatly appreciated and in return you are offered the following:

In return it is requested from you:




Contribution to the “Waive the Fee” Fund / Sponsoring

One important goal of the conference is to support the attendance of delegates from developing countries, who have abstracts of merit selected by the scientific and steering committee, but whose participation is hindered by financial limitations. In lieu of traditional conference sponsorships, supporting organizations are requested to consider a financial contribution toward the “waive the fee fund”, which is being managed through a specific funded bank account for that matter.

For example, a delegate from Asia or Africa, who would be otherwise unable to present their work at the conference, might receive a stipend to subsidize their conference fees, and hotel accommodation for a maximum of 4 nights. While the costs involved are relatively modest, the potential for high leverage improvements for service users, staff, and organizational effectiveness provided by delegates’ attendance at the conference should not be underestimated and represents an opportunity to achieve a very meaningful return for your financial support. Feedback from attendees at past conferences has highlighted the benefits of having a rich blend of conference participants.

If your organization wishes to contribute to this fund, please donate your financial contribution preferably before April 2018 in order to know in time how many delegates from developing countries, who have abstracts of merit selected by the scientific committee, can be informed before starting their visa applications.
