Call for Abstracts: MARPS Network Limited (MNL) First Annual Conference on Key Populations and Priority Populations

‘Interventions responsive to the needs of Key and Priority Populations: The case of Uganda’ In March 2018, MARPS Network Limited (MNL) will hold Uganda’s First Annual Conference on Key Populations and Priority Populations. This year also marks MNL’s 10th year of service and work with key populations in Uganda.

In celebration of this key milestone, we are pleased to announce the call for abstracts on key populations and priority populations in Uganda. MNL is particularly interested in papers from practitioners, academics and key and priority population representatives around the theme: ‘Interventions responsive to the needs of key populations and priority populations: the case of Uganda.’ The abstract papers will focus on addressing the specific challenges faced by these communities and innovative interventions to address these challenges.

This call is open to individuals and organisations across all fields including health workers, academics, religious institutions, civil society organisations, and community based organizations particularly those that are serving or led by key populations and priority populations. Applications can also include artistic representation of activities relevant to the theme, debates, and audio/visual presentations.

Key populations and priority populations programming is an integral part of wider HIV/AIDS programming in Uganda, and there is a wealth of activities engaging these groups that need to be highlighted. The authors of the selected abstracts will have the opportunity to present their work at the conference scheduled to take place from 15th – 16th March 2018 at a venue to be determined and communicated in due course. The abstracts from the conference will also be featured in the MNL 10th Anniversary Special Issue.

This annual conference aims to highlight work across Uganda and beyond; create opportunities for networking and feedback; and contribute to a growing international body of knowledge on key populations and priority population programming. Deadline for submission of abstracts: 31st January 2018 Deadline for submission of queries: 20th January 2018 Send abstracts to:
