London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

University of London

Tavistock Place

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Colin Talbot, Professor of Public Policy and Management

The Health Policy & Politics Network (HPPN) is successor to the Politics of Health Group that has been run for the last 20 years or so in the form of a special interest group of the Political Studies Association. HPPN has now become independent in order more easily to encourage interdisciplinary working. HPPN aims to provide a forum for the reporting of research and analytical discussion about any aspect of the politics of health, health care policy or health services management and to facilitate the development of informal and collaborative relationships between academics and interested practitioners working in the above fields.

We invite submission of paper presentations to this free one-day event on any topic related to health politics, policy or management. Speakers will be allocated 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion/questions.

To propose a paper, please submit an abstract to Stephen Peckham (Stephen.Peckham@lshtm.ac.uk) by 31st January 2011. Notification of acceptance will be given by the end of February 2011.

To register, please fill in and return this booking form.
