WATER AND HEALTH 2018 - Conference at UNC, Oct 29 to Nov 2, 2018 (Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA)

There is an interesting conference coming up in the United States which is held every year with the motto "where science meets policy":
It's called "Water and Health 2018"

SUMMARY & THEMES
The Water and Health Conference explores drinking water supply, sanitation, hygiene and water resources in both the developing and developed worlds with a strong public health emphasis.

2018 Conference Themes:
- Measuring Progress Toward SDG Targets
- Water Scarcity
- Rural Water Supply
- WaSH Equity and Inclusion
- WaSH in Emergencies

More information:
www.cvent.com/events/water-and-health-20...6d03c56344d381d.aspx

Presentations from their previous conferences is available here in the presentation archives:
waterinstitute.unc.edu/conferences/

(mental note: should the presentations, or a link to their page, also be included in the SuSanA library?)

If anyone from our forum contributors is going to this conference, please comment in this thread and then perhaps try to meet up there as it's always fun to meet someone in real life after having read their posts for some months or years...
(I am not going to the conference myself)

Regards,
Elisabeth

Dear Sharada, I am not going to the conference (I'm currently living in Brisbane, Australia, so everything is quite far from here...). So I won't get to meet you again this time - pity! - Do you have a presentation to give?

I just saw that one event at the conference (or maybe more?) will be streamed live, allowing for virtual participation from anywhere in the world:

The 7th Virtual Conference on Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) in Schools provides an opportunity to hear the latest research and programming from around the world. The conference will focus on the "MHM in Ten" five priorities identified for transforming MHM in Schools by 2024.

This year's virtual conference will be streamed live from the 2018 Water and Health Conference: Where Science Meets Policy, organized by The Water Institute at UNC.

If you are registered for Water & Health and you would like details on in-person attendance to the virtual conference, please contact us.

++++++++++

For links and details see here in the recent e-mail by UNICEF:
mailchi.mp/b13cfc15f2ad/register-for-the...schools?e=463453808f

Interesting idea is also this: Organize a viewing party!

Joining the virtual conference is more fun with friends :) If you are tuning in from around the world, consider bringing your colleagues together to view the conference in one place.

Here are some tips for organizing a viewing party:
- Make sure everyone in the group is registered before the conference.
- Book a meeting space that can accommodate the group.
- Make sure the meeting room has a good internet connection, a laptop and basic sound system. Conduct sound and equipment checks prior to the virtual conference.
- Consider organizing snacks and drinks depending on your time zone.
- Join online at 7:00 AM (EST) and enjoy the presentations!
- Tweet a photo of your group using the hashtag #MHMConf - we will post your photos online.
- Connect with others on the virtual platform: ask questions and share comments.


Regards,
Elisabeth

I will be at the conference, and there appears to be a strong line up of sanitation presentations. It was at Water and Health 2013 that I "discovered" sanitation in a talk by Jan Willem Rosenboom. I will look for Sharada, since I've been seeing his work for years now.
