2nd EQUATOR Annual Lecture

‘Redescribing medicine: reporting or reclaiming research for health?’

Following
the great success of the inaugural Annual Lecture held last year at the
EQUATOR launch meeting in London, UK, we would like to invite you to
the 2nd EQUATOR Annual Lecture presented by

Dr Richard Horton

Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet

Date: 9 September 2009, 18:00 – 19:00,
Venue: The Westin Bayshore Hotel – Salon A, Vancouver 

The
talk will focus on important issues relating to the research reporting
and will include areas such as publication bias against low-income
countries, failure to collaborate fairly with authors in low/middle
income countries, examining the global impact of research findings,
equity issues in medical research, and how high-income countries might
work to promote a fairer reporting of global health issues.

We hope that all congress participants will find the lecture of great interest and we look forward to seeing you there.
