For the first time, MSF Scientific Day 2015 will be a two-day event on 7th-8th May, hosted at both the Royal Society of Medicine in London, UK and in New Delhi, India. Everything will be streamed live online. Last year over 2,200 people watched online from over 102 countries.
Our vision is for the MSF Scientific Day to be a true ‘conference without borders’ - a platform to enable MSF to present the best evidence of how it is striving to improve the effectiveness of medical humanitarian aid and to propose ways forward.
Day 1: Innovative approaches & technology in humanitarian action
How do we ensure that we are using the best means to deliver medical humanitarian assistance while avoiding innovating for innovation’s sake?
Day 2: Medical research from the frontline
Day 2 of the MSF Scientific Day will be hosted in both the UK and India and both will be livestreamed.
MSF Scientific Day in the UK
The MSF Scientific Day features scientific research from MSF programmes around the world. We are delighted to announce that the keynote presentation will be given by Professor Jeremy Farrar, Director of the Wellcome Trust. We will also host an Ebola session to present operational research from the current outbreak as well as a debate on the ways forward.
MSF Scientific Day in India
MSF Scientific Day India will present research of both regional and international relevance. The event hopes to improve engagement with the medical community in India and to build on the medical expertise of the MSF India Office to support MSF operations in the region.
