I’m also delighted that an abstract I have been involved with, has been selected for the congress and I will be co-presenting on a panel for Multitasking: Gender Transformative Practice in Public Health where we will address Equity in Health, Health promotion and Health systems. I’ll be joining Lorraine Greaves and Nancy Poole (Galvanizing Equity, Canada) and Danny Blay (Prevention of Violence Against Women).

I look forward to seeing you there.

With regards,
