Conference Activities Over the Decade
The inaugural National Health Research Conference was held on November 25-26, 2010 at the Wyndham Kingston Hotel under the theme Bringing Health Research into Focus. The Conference sought to highlight research being conducted by the Ministry of Health, other institutions and individuals, and to facilitate discussions on national and regional research priorities, while providing an opportunity for health research networking. The original purpose has transitioned over the decade to the current objectives:
- To share the findings of health studies conducted by the Ministry of Health and Wellness and other institutions and individuals in Jamaica;
- To identify operational research with the potential to influence or be translated into policy;
- To facilitate special discussions and presentations that focus on the conference theme.
