In 2016, continuing with the tradition of partnering with a significant health systems research symposium, we shall be having a new edition of EV4GH in close association and partnership with the 4th Global Symposium on health systems research (Vancouver symposium), organised by Health Systems Global. The theme for the Vancouver symposium is Resilient and responsive Health Systems for a changing worldThe symposium will take place from 14-18 November, 2016 at Vancouver.

2015 has been an important year for EV4GH. We now have a new globally representative governance structure as well as a new secretariat. Read more about the new governance structure and the secretariat in the updated About section of the website. We announced these changes on the updated News section of our website.

For EV4GH 2016 ,we will select young researchers who seek to become global health advocates and/or local change agents in their regions/countries. Spread the word and share the call with researchers, institutions and other global and local platforms.
