UHRC and IAPSM Announces the 3rd Nation-wide Essay Contest on Urban Health

Author(s): Editorial Staff

Vol. 30, No. 4 (2005-10 - 2005-12)

Urban Health Resource Centre (formerly EHP India) in collaboration with IAPSM announces the 3rd nation wide essay contest on "Strengthening RCH services to the urban poor in mid sized cities: Challenges and Options". The mid size cities (having a polulation of 1-2 million) are characterized by deficient health infrastructure and low capacity of municipal bodies to manage health services. This is very unlike larger metropolises. Innovative models of health service delivery are therefore required to improve the access to health services among urban poor. Essays addressing these issues and proposing feasible models of health service delivery in these cities are invited from young public health professionals (below 35 years of age).

Individuals producing three best essays will be awarded with certificates and prizes during 33rd National Annual Conference of IAPSM at Tirupati (Andhra Pradesh) in 2006. UHRC would support travel of the winners (main author only) from their place of work to the conference venue. Only one entry is allowed for person. The last date of submission is October 31, 2005. The winners will be intimated at least a month before the award ceremony. The summary/full text of the best essay/s could be considered for publication in Indian Journal of Community Medicine, the official journal of IAPSM.

Entries should be sent to [email protected] or Urban Health Resource Centre, F- 9/4, Vasant Vihar, New Delhi 110 057 (Inquiries may be made to [email protected] or 011-26149771/81.).
