2018 International Health Congress                             28th - 30th June 2018                                                     

This Oxford International Health Conference series seeks to bring together health researchers who aim to promote health and wellbeing through improved health services in Europe and around the world.

The 2018 global health conference is hosted at the University of Oxford. The aim of the event, building on the 2017 world health congress, is to highlight the link between research and practice by gathering together a wide range of papers on health and health services research close to practice and/or policy. These will come from the full range of allied disciplines including primary care, acute medicine, public health, psychiatry, paediatrics, and ageing as well as economics, psychology, statistics, social science and ethics, clinical trial design, health informatics and implementation research.

Selected papers presented at the 2018 International Health Conference will be published free of charge to a Special Issue of Medical Sciences, a peer-reviewed, Open Access journal indexed at PubMed. For detailed information on the Special Issue and the submission process, please visit:


The world health congress series has been established by academics in Oxford and elsewhere and is open to health researchers, particularly those related to health services in the UK, Europe and beyond. We hope that you will contribute to what promises to be an exciting new opportunity to develop research networks and encourage the uptake of research and evidence based innovations in all areas of science that contribute to health and wellbeing through better health services.

Here you may find the completed programme of the conference as well as the book of abstracts and the list of poster presentations.
