Early Career Researcher Special Interest Group

Aims and Objectives

The aim of the Early Career Researcher Special Interest Group (ECRSIG) is to provide an environment where students from various disciplines, with a common interest in health policy, can share knowledge and experiences in both health policy research and practice. The ECRSIG will provide a platform for students to get involved in various aspects of health policy and to promote dialogue, networking and collaboration across sectors.

Additional information about the ECRSIG will be available soon.
